Font Salamat (2015) by Joluvian.
Since the release of his first typeface, Zulia Pro, Joluvian has spent his time dedicatedly experimenting with an array of calligraphic styles and typography, before starting on his second typeface, Salamat.
The journey began on a trip to Asia, where Joluvian was inspired by his time in the Philippines. After a series of discarded type sketches, the first stroke of what is now Salamat was then born.
What at first was a quick sketch, over time, evolved into a stylized typography; that lends to humanistic-expressive calligraphy, optimized with wide variety of swash capitals, contextuals ligatures, ascending and descending, starting and ending letters and a wide range of characters for each glyph.
Salamat provides the user absolute freedom to play, create words, sentences and even very stylized paragraphs. Giving one the freedom with type, the way the Philippines gave Joluvian the freedom to explore calligraphy and typography.
Joluvian considers Salamat a new benchmark in his career. He now possesses more typography maturity, and a refined focus to put into practice all the knowledge acquired in his recent years of study, for this and much more salamat (‘thank you’ in Tagalog) to the Philippines.4 hearts

That we are not totally transformed, that we can turn away, turn the page, switch the channel, does not impugn the ethical value of an assault by images.
It is not a defect that we are not seared, that we do not suffer enough, when we see these images.
Neither is the photograph supposed to repair our ignorance about the history and causes of the suffering it picks out and frames. Such images cannot be more than an invitation to pay attention, to reflect, to learn, to examine the rationalizations for mass suffering offered by established powers.
Who caused what the picture shows? Who is responsible? Is it excusable? Was it inevitable? Is there some state of affairs which we have accepted up to now that ought to be challenged? All this, with the understanding that moral indignation, like compassion, cannot dictate a course of action.

What I saw… is the area around my home through my eyes. What I saw is beautiful nature, mystic woods, peaceful and forgotten places. I discovered every corner of this landscape.
I saw the diversity of the changing seasons and the incredible transformation of this place. I realized its beauty lies in its simplicity and it teached me how to slow down. Focusing on the special moments of this place, I want to inspire to discover the story behind these objects.
The landscape is characterized by its centuries-old agricultural use. There are some isolated farms with houses built in the 16th or 17th century. Built with naturally occurring materials from the immediate surroundings, especially timber and clay. These buildings were built to last for more than one hundred years.
During the winter month, these farmsteads were nearly impossible to reach. For the heavy work in the woods and in the mountains they had proper draught horses, well adapted to the alpine terrain. Today almost every farm still owns horses of this heavy Bavarian draught horse breed to preserve their culture.6 hearts
