kayal villa wall sign at Panangad Cochin

A beautiful piece of hand painted signage. Kayal means backwaters, a semi saline water body that flows into the ocean, and also meanders through a major chunk of middle Kerala. Beautiful & distinct. Iconic to the state. The lettering floats on a local backwater canoe.

About typesutra

Typesutra is type love. love for type. a type of love. true love. true type. Typesutra is a typographer's personal diary from Cochin, Kerala, South India. Growing up with letterforms like malayalam, tamil and the local interpretations of the Latin script has deeply influenced my design aesthetic and found type continues to be my greatest inspiration.
