A three-style family typeface, from text to words

Rumba Specimen

Rumba consists of three fonts: Rumba Small for texts, Rumba Large for headlines and Rumba Extra for words with a lettering flavour. The family is based on the idea of fonts that are interrelated depending on the differences in contrast, expressiveness and use, not on the classic range of weights. Designed specifically for all Latin languages which makes Rumba a multi-lingual typeface.

Rumba was the project I developed during my period at the Postgraduate Type and Media at the KABK in The Hague. If you want to know more about the design process, I highly recommend you to download the paper at TypeCulture.
