Writing is narrating
What happens when the letter becomes an image and vice versa? Type Sailor aims to help form a better visual environment through memorable books, seductive posters and editorial objects that fulfill their function of democratizing culture.
The Gravity Of Light - Ed Santella
This is Edward Santella's first book. Don't believe what you see, hear or touch. And most of all, don't believe the truth. The United Economies is on the brink of collapse. The global information network has proclaimed itself as a sentient being, calling itself EVE.
EVE promises to give humanity what they have been dreaming of since the beginning of time: immortality. In return, they must accept that the network's reasoning is the only "truth." But EVE already has enemies. Someone or something who claims to be the Virgin Mary - and performs miracles to prove it - warns that EVE is an incarnation of Satan, that her followers are sorcerers and must be destroyed.

Project together with the artist Mateo Rivano. We were commissioned to create the poster and the schedule for the Colombian representation at the MaMA in France, in the Franco-Colombian year. Our concept was to create an image that could show the vibrancy and colorful point of view of Colombian landscapes and their music, from punk to cumbia to hip hop.

Tipocartografismo is a completely handmade book; its concept comes from the old atlases of the century of discoveries. The idea is simple: use as a metaphor between islands (cartography) and letters (typography). In this way, each island is unique, with a monster and a ship. There are 4 chapters: Rome, Arabia, Middle Ages and France. See it on Behance
Hello Yak - El Camino
What is a dream? It is this. My friend Lina Posada is a great singer (besides being a great person). We have been working on this idea since 2017, when we talked about our shared taste for Road Movies. I hope you like this project as much as we liked creating it.

Leonardo Correa commissioned me his debut feature La Empresa Familiar. A book that explains in a surprisingly simple way what an entity like the one described in the title is and how to manage it. I wanted to resolve the issue of the notes by placing them as close to their position in the text as possible. The idea arose from medieval glosses, where copyists could comment on the texts they were transcribing. Helvetica Neue and Garamond Premier Pro are the true stars of this book. See it on Behance .
