Tipos das Letras went to the city of Faro (Portugal) to give the Ruha Stencil Workshop and also we had an exhibition at the Algarve Design Meeting. Nice event, place and people, thank you for the invitation!. Fábrica da Cerveja (Faro).
Ruha letter stencil, a multi stylistical typographic system workshop (EXD15). Ruha was initially developed as a teaching tool for graphic design students to learn from experiment letter shape as a significant in graphic communications. Afterwards, it imposed itself as an autonomous project, materializing into a product for all the community.
Tipos das letras went to Bergen (Norway) to made Ruha Stencil workshop at Bergen Academy of Art and Design. Workshop participants developed typographical posters with Ruha ruler with the theme “Archizines” of which were presented during the event. Special thanks to Geir Goosen and Grafill Bergen for invited us, it was a great time!
Designed by Tipos das Letras, TDL Ruha Latin is a modern and mechanical serif typeface and it results from the development of the stencil RUHA. Being the first typeface of the family, sets the basic concepts to be developed further, on each version to come. There is an rigid geometrical connection with the Roman du Roi design approach, since the letterforms are imposed by the constraints of the RUHA ruler. Maintaining the same structure with different typographical and stylistic properties, the stencil allowed to explore a modern typeface, with vertical stress, high contrast between the thick and thin strokes and triangular serifs.
