Most Sacred Majesty: On the 22nd day of the month of May of the year 1678, I dispatched from an unknown location, off the coast of Mexico, to the Madeline de Brest , a vessel, and in her a servant of mine, with orders to pass on my letter and its contents to your Majesty. I’ve encountered the people of these distant parts. It seems to me important that your Highness should become acquainted with my doings. I will therefore narrate some events plainly and to the best of my ability. I will describe only the principle and most remarkable incidents of said journey. Great discoveries have been made in your Majesty’s name. Mexico holds unfathomable quantities of gold, and silver, much beauty can be found in this savage place. As your Majesty is aware, this new world is also being explored by the Spanish. Our expedition avoids the Spaniards at all costs. This is to fend off any battles that may occurred if our two parties met. Most of the lands have not been touched by the hand of man. Roads and passages can hardly be found here. The mountains are so high and the forests so thick and impenetrable, that we could only see the spot where we placed our feet. Looking upwards, blue skies disappeared over our heads, the trees so tall and so close to each other, that those who climbed up them to discover land could not see beyond a stone’s throw . We found a village with several maize plantations in the finest of possible conditions. We also found other provisions, fowls, honey, beans and other produce of the land. The natives, if there were any at this place, not having shown themselves or made any oppositions, my men carried with us as much as we could back to the ship. Our provisions were running scare at this time. It was indeed a most welcome discovery and compensation for all our past troubles, for had we not found it at that moment, we should all have perished through hunger. The Mexica Empire, tribes, and peoples hold so many dark and mysterious secrets. They are ruthless heathens, with many gods that hunger for human sacrifice and blood. It happened that one of my men saw one of the Indians who had come with me from the Tenuxtitlan eating a piece of flesh taken from the body of another Indian, whom he had killed on entering Iztapan. When the case was reported to me, I had the Indian arrested, and there, in the presence of all, had him burnt alive, for having slain and afterwards eaten of the fellow creature. An abomination, which your Majesty, and myself in your royal name, have repeatedly condemned, ordering the people of these parts to abstain from doing.

Aloha

Aloha! Five simple letters that express beauty and force all at once. The Hawaiian word for love, affection, peace, compassion, and mercy. But to native Hawaiians, this word has a much deeper cultural significance, the term is used to define a force that can hold together existence. This word’s strong connotation has inspired us to capture all its qualities visually. A monospace font with a mixture of serif and sans serif letters are combined to create this font. Long horizontal serif brackets are seen in the lowercase (f, g, I, j, l and t ). Sharp uppercase serifs are featured in the (C, G, I, J, S). Lowercase unique features include; the (a and c) has rounded serifs. Lowercase (b, d, h, k, m, n, p, q, r, s, t) have sharp serifs that adorn them. The remainder of the character set is created in a classic sans serif tradition. The font comes in 5 styles, ranging from black to thin, and is available in OTF, WOFF2, and Variable formats. In the spirit of the word Aloha, we aimed to visually showcase its force in this typeface, two opposites beautifully coexisting to create a visually harmonious and impactful message.

Africa

The Africa font name is inspired by the earth’s second-largest and second-most populated continent on Earth. It’s also considered by most paleoanthropologists to be the oldest inhabited territory on the planet, with the human species originating from the continent. The Africa font collection is composed of two styles, Africa Drylands and Africa Rainfall

This fonts construction follows in the footsteps of a nineteenth century print style typeface with romantic sensibilities. Africa Drylands characteristics can be distinguished by its sharp cut through the heart serifs, and hints of vertical tension. Africa Rainfall’s raindrop serifs are a strikingly beautiful contrast to its sharp counterparts. These sharp characteristics can also be found within the style, they are combined with rain drop like serifs to create flow and romantic tension. The serif drops of uppercase J, lowercase a, c, f, r, y. Numeral 3 and 5 will have you wanting to kiss the rains down in Africa.
