Disguised in Dance

Typography / Book Design / Photography

POSTER2205TOPRINT.png

Typographic project for a book called 10 facts about Capoeira: Disguised in dance. It is the model for a series of small book on dance and martial arts.

The history of typography has many letterform and human bodies intermingled. I wanted to play with the idea that letters could have motion, dance, become kinetic typography.

I practice capoeira and wanted to create a book design that would show the energy, the spirit and the magic of the movements in the typography artwork. I set up a photoshoot at a friend photograph studio and invited my fellow capoeiristas. I transformed them into living letters afterwards and made the content interact with the artwork.
