Afronaut

Afronaut was inspired by vernacular Latin & Arabic typography in in St. Louis (on Senegal-Mauretania Border, Africa). Geometric forms working well and contrasting with smooth, round elements. After reading Afronautics – from Zambia to the Moon by Bartek Sabela (about Zambian conquest of space) a breif was set to create typeface that looks like mix between: vernacular Arabic script, futuristic typography and some special lettering that I found in Africa during my travels to Guinée, Bissau, Gambia, Senegal, Mauritania and West Sahara.

Afronaut is one weight but many letters have 3 different forms. Afronaut can work as regular version of my Yalla Typeface.
