Platotipos is a collective alphabet made of 84 different characters, each one created by a different designer. More than coming up with something new from scratch, it aimed on recovering and refurbishing forgotten lettersets that never made into a project. It awarded Bronze, category Typography, at the Latin American Design Awards 2019.
The presented character is number 7 and its typeface is named Rejunte (grout, in Portuguese), inspired by the works of brazilian artist Athos Bulcão, well known for his tilework patterns.
