AKIRA is a lettering inspired by the japanese tuning. It uses shapes inspired by curves from tuned cars, ornaments, stickers and inspires motion. It’s a versatile lettering, with multiple possible variations for the same letter.
The result of this research is a newspaper that uses grids taken from japanese dailies and mangas. These construction systems gave me the possibility to show off its modularity and to create strong black and white contrasts. This lettering aims to symbolize the movement or to be used as one alone, like a visual language.
