Description

Skope is an experiment in horizontal stress and also a recreation of the extreme lettering style of comic masters such as Josep Coll or Manuel Urda from his cartoons in the pages of the classic TBO (Barcelona, Spain, 1917-1998)  or our contemporary favorites Francesc Capdevila -Max- and Joost Swarte.

The proportions and some of the fundamental features of Skope are drawn from the features of the masthead of the magazine Triunfo (Valencia, Spain, 1946-1982). 

The inspiration for the numbers comes from a kitchen clock from the 70’s photographed in the distance in a second-hand shop.
