Málaga Type was born as a meeting between lovers of letters that takes place in the city of Málaga with the aim of spreading typographic culture and creating a community. All this with beer as a cohesive element, with Cervezas Victoria, the Málaga beer par excellence, key to this event. And all in an intense but hilarious one-day journey!
Málaga Type is organized by Rayitas Azules, an editorial design and typography blog led by designers and teachers Ana Moliz and Salva Cerdá and the head of communication and designer Esther Sepúlveda. This second edition featured the participation of Diego Areso, journalist, editorial designer and art director of El País; Laura Meseguer, graphic and typographic designer of international prestige, and, as local speaker, Lucía Types, lettering artist. In addition to the workshop “How to design digital typography with Glyphs?” taught by Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer, a member of the Glyphs team.
Being an event focused on typography and editorial design, the most outstanding elements in the identity are these features. Labil Grotesk brings that rational and typographic touch to the whole. In addition, the yellow gradient (simulating the natural interior shade of a book), the black and white photos and the bleeding layouts make this piece a unique identity developed by Tiquismiquis.club.
