The Anti-Type Poem

The anti-type poem will sum up more than twenty years of typography, lettering, and calligraphy work from the Brazilian, California-based designer and artist Yomar Augusto. His work has evolved towards a deep experimentation in search of the merge of the classic and the contemporary. Within Augusto’s timeline performance, he will be using exclusively custom-made typefaces from specific periods of his life while working as independent creative in Brazil, Europe, and the United States.
