New Blood Entry — Sole Type

Award: Graphite Pencil

Monotype / 2019

Just like in the rest of the world, we also have a bad word for lesbians in Brazil: “sapatão”. Which literally means "big shoe". An expression normally used to undervalue our pride. But we wanna change that by using what push us down, to raise us up.
So we created SOLE TYPE, a typeface made with shoe soles to give lesbian community more visibility. We asked women to send us photos of their shoe soles and using each image, we created an entire alphabet to send a positive message all around the world.
