Typography Inspired by São Paulo Pixo (Free Font)

MURO SP is a typeface inspired by ‘pixo’, a form of urban expression that covers buildings and walls in São Paulo with its unique and original spray painted typography style. It's impossible to walk around the city and don't see it. It's everywhere.  What I did was to create a typography based on all of 'pixo' that I saw every single day through these years walking on the city.

The Batmobile Documentary

Batman is my favorite superhero. I used to be a Superman kind of kid. I remember watching the 80s movies and I think that influenced my opinion until 1989 when Tim Burton’s Batman released. That changed the game. Everything about that movie was awesome. It was much darker than any other superhero movie I had seen. There was Jack Nicholson and then there was the batmobile.
