Choriza

This typeface is only an useless and funny experiment, and I did it because the usual mix of ideas and motivations that drive me to make typefaces.

First of all, I had this stupid idea of joking about modular fonts taking pictures of cutting pieces of chorizo, an spicy spanish sausage with a curvy form well suited for that purpose.

Second, I had printed with chromatic wooden type in our letterpress workshop and liked the idea of making a color digital typeface.

Also, I’m part of a group of typeheads called Lletraferits (wounded by letters). We met every spring in a big countryside house for have fun eating, drinking and talking about typography. Every member can make a little lecture about anything, and sometimes type designers show spoilers of their future releases. That year I wanted to make some weird lecture to a bunch of semi drunk colleagues, but I needed a theme.

So, I had that Eureka moment: The chorizo idea could be a digital typeface and It would need shadows and colors so I would learn about multilayered type in a very simple way.

And, most important, Chorizo means Thief in informal spanish, and in that moment Spain’s politics was ravaged by corruption (and still is), so I though in a Lletraferits lecture talking about a my next typeface showing those slides with big names of politicians and that was enough for me to start drawing.

So that’s my real motivation about type, I just like to have fun.
