Juntos is a project developed with 7-8 year old students of the Otávio Rosa school in Novo Hamburgo/Brazil. The aim was to collectively develop a typeface and show that, despite their differences as a group, the students could create something bigger together. By overlapping the writing of each one of the students, we created a single font, called ‘Juntos’, which means ‘together’ in Portuguese. We used the font to create posters that were displayed around the school. We also encouraged the students to reflect on the group work and on their group identity by using design as a tool of change, both in school and in their own social context.
