Hello! I’m Ricard, a type designer, letterer & code enthusiast from Barcelona. I love jazz too.

Reinforcing the voice of each message my work goes from unique pieces to full typefaces & generative art.

This is a homage to Jay Adams, the most controversial and rough of the Zephyr Boys (a.k.a. Z-Boys), a skateboard competition team formed by Tony Alva,  Stacy Peralta and Jay Adams amongst others.

Since the beginning, the idea was to bring this rage and tension that Jay had into a piece of lettering. To do so, the project relies on the effect of a broken wood like a skateboard does when someone steps on it in a wrong way or expresses the frustration of not doing the trick correctly.
