Bunch Sans is a bespoke typeface born through a month-long study done under the direction of Sergio Martinez, while interning for Dum Dum Studio in Monterrey, Mexico. The project began with intentions to be used as an identity typeface for Bunch Assembly, an initiative of the studio.
Bunch Assembly is an online entity, acting as an exposure service and representing artists and creatives in the small city of San Pedro. Through designing editorial publications, clothing, art pieces, and more in collaboration with local artists, B.A. hopes to share the culture and happenings of Monterrey on a broader scale.
The typeface is a single weight, all capital alphabet, taking inspiration from both modernist typography and the hand-painted signage that lines the streets of my then neighborhood. The family includes both English and Spanish characters with 42 accompanying symbols.
