Antipixel — Julia Martinez Diana — Buenos Aires, Argentina
“My most conceptual work is the Austral family, consisting of Serif and Sans Serif versions. I designed this with a road-trip in mind, centred on the part of Argentina in which I live. Deriving inspiration from different objects and textures, I had to take photographs of rust, water, humidity marks, dirt, maps and road lines. Its irregular strokes reflect silhouettes of mountains, treelines, old broken wood. I selected thematic language, so the travel and journey aspects inspired the choice of both images and words.”
