This Fall Nando Costa visited Chile to speak at a design conference called Sudala. For the event, he created a custom typography piece. He captured the creation of the work recording his screen. The recording was later played at the event. The illustration was made with no prior planning and really illustrates just how talented Costa is. We were watching it this afternoon in our studio and were once again impressed by Costa’s genuine talent.
