Some Postcards!

My project use traditional words of the pre-Columbian cultures, I want to do a little tribute highlighting the best of them with my letters.

There are 3 words in my project:  "Bacatá", "Chicha" and "Tejo", and this is the process.

BACATÁ

I wanted the letters had an aboriginal style, so I chose the last one.

TEJO

I had a clearer idea about the design of this word, so I made a few versions to work.

I wanted the design of the word was geometric to make a relation with an "Tejo" element.
