I especially appreciate the anti-coke poster in his portfolio, which reads: For nine years the 450 workers at the Coca-Cola bottling plant in Guatemala City fought a battle for their jobs, their trade union and their lives. Three times they occupied the plant---on the last occasion for 13 months. Three General Secretaries of their union were murdered and five other workers killed.

To celebrate the Olympics in London in 2012, he created a typeface based on the Olympic rings, using a circular grid system. The typeface is called Olympia (2012).

In 2013, he created Core (an inline simple sans), Rounded Mod (geometric rounded circle-based sans), and Pixel. [Google] [More]  ⦿
