Definitly it’s gonna be difficult to forget this place and all good things happened here. But I suppose each new step drives you to a new way and to a different (not worst) destiny. Doesn’t have sense to think much about it, just living each moment like the way could turn in a moment.

The most important part is to know you have now in your pockets lots of new experiences, knowledge, moments and friends. Also the fact that you’re a different (and probably better) person, more mature and conscious about how this life works and what can you do to survive.

It’s always hard to say goodbye. But it’s nice to see you’ve left some good pieces of you behind your steps. That’s one of the most important things, to leave your print somehow, because it’s the way you’ll be remembered

6º CIT

Tomorrow I’ll be in Congreso Internacional de Tipografía de Valencia showing and talking about my research work: Autodidactismo y Creación Tipográfica - 90’s Typography in Spain.

Born is more than a typeface, it’s also a story; The one of my 2013. A story about moving to the big city, the result of meet great people from all parts of the world and their cultures too, the result of talks in classes, bars and trains… the result of sharing moments, experiences, knowledges… Born is the result of all these experiences and people: and now I’m sharing with you this piece of my story.

Born is a humanist typeface that is based on traditional calligraphic forms, but with some new features in its endings, strokes and drops, that provide a more open, fresh and actual look. It also has a big X height, so it offers a high legibility even at small sizes.

Born Regular includes a total of 262 glyphs: Uppercase, Lower case, Alternative glyhps of the above ones, normal Ligatures, Uppercase numerals and symbols and punctuation marks.

5 Things I learned living away from home

1. Things aren’t so bad as we expect in a first moment. Life isn’t as hard as we sometimes imagine and problems will be solved because all things we could imagine were worst than reality is.

You learn to be alone in lots of times, you learn to be stronger and to catch the bad things and convert them into positive thinking.

2. Your place in the world probably is not a physical place, it’s a mix of things who make you feel like home. You come to the conclusion you are a citizen of the world and you start to understand other cultures, people, manners… that makes your life more rich and human and eliminate any bias you had. You learn to build your own little family as a way to survive and feel like it was your home.

3. People are soooo materialistic. We are always collecting things, we store them and we don’t realize we can live with only a few. When you came to that conclusion and you quit from you life that stupid things you feel more free and better with yourself. It’s a liberating feeling that moves you and delete that need of physical place.

4. Usually we don’t value what we have. Our family, our home… that daily things that make us live so comfortable. When you live away from home you start to realize how lucky you are and how living is so expensive and hard, then you start to thank all days what you have. You become a more grateful person and you start to relativize bad things.

5. You mature and you become in a more liable person who can face any problem, you learn to manage and solve them. Definitely you grow up as a person and you become a man.
