Background

Say hi to Tikal Sans; A bloody Mayan ritual with no reading sacrifice. Is a glyphic family of twenty weights Mayan inspired designed for Text and Display sizes. The Details curved terminating strokes ended in sharp edges inspired in the ‘virgula’ Mayan glyph that means ‘the spoken word’. Tikal is also known for being the largest city of the Mayan Classic Period and his name means “Lugar de Las Voces” (place of voices). With a contemporary large x-height with opentype contextual alternate letters offers a functional look with a friendly touch. The Thin and Black weights are great performers in display sizes the light, regular and medium weights are well suited to longer texts.
