TO FOLD, “DOBLAR”. Each letter consists of a strip of paper which is folded three times at most per character. The lowercase letters occupy the vertical lines, while the uppercase letters build on the horizontal strokes of the same text. This creates a game of colors that gives room to the text and allows people to play with it. The font is an investigation about readability, with the conclusion that we are highly trained in ‘reading’ letters and are able to assign any shape to a sound. In other words: Human beings are able to read a text as soon as they know the shape-sound-system by heart. (project on my own initiative)
