Laude is a personal typographic project, a display font: you can download Laude here.

I wanted to create letters related to my birthplace: it’d be kind of a gift for a place I’m proud to come from, Segovia. After some research, I found several references at the Nuestra Señora de la Asunción y de San Frutos’s Cathedral of Segovia: one of the latest gothic cathedrals from Europe, built between 1525 and 1577. There are many tombs inside the cathedral, and each tomb has lots of letters that tell about who is buried there. So I decided to base Lauded on the sepulchral lauds of the seventeenth century of Segovia’s Cathedral.

Segovia is not a place famous because of its type designers (irony) so the local newspaper «El Adelantado de Segovia» interviewed me to know more about this project as  a cultural value of the city of Segovia. You can read the interview in Spanish here.
