Sharing surprising secrets from blind ballerinas, voodoo priests and even a nurse who can smell Parkinson’s disease before it is diagnosed, Super Senses by Emma Young uncovers the science behind these abilities that make us human – and offers fascinating lessons in how we can all learn to use them better. Supersentidos is a Portuguese edition published by BestSeller.
To represent super senses, nothing better than a super display font – in this case, Redonda Black, available from Plau.
The font design came from a search for a lot of impact. In the early stages of Redonda’s development, I went for a geometric approach to its design and gave it only a black weight and capitals. Later on the project, the font gained several weights, lowercase letters, and went from geometric to humanist. It has kept the impact aspect that inspired it, but also offers good performance on flowing interfaces and texts. Five weights and true cursive italics make it a good toolkit for graphic designers. From eye-catching logotypes to complex text settings, Redonda works well when you need familiar curves with a friendly touch.
