Otomi Sans - MFA Thesis

My MFA Thesis project was to develop an alphabet and design a typeface for the indigenous Mexican language Otomi. Otomi is a native language my paternal grandmother speaks. I have spent a good amount of time traveling to Mexico to be with family and when it was time to pick a subject for my thesis it was a no brainer for me. Language, Letters & Typography are such significant aspects of what we do as graphic designers that this was a project that felt both personally & creatively very gratifying.
