Title: Ciudad

Ciudad was born from an initiative to raise awareness for one of Mexico’s most ambitious environmental projects. Unable to find a typeface, we designed one, enlisting the help of type designer Georg Seifert (Berlin). Embracing the font’s architectural essence, we evolved it from 2D to sculpture to film. This journey made us realize that the project wasn’t about the font but about residing in the space of transformation that’s inherent in the cities we inhabit.
