Acculturation Display is a typeface that explores the way that immigrants' cultural identity changes due to relocation and the way they deal with it. The design of each glyph has been inspired by real testimonies of immigrants, all collected in a type specimen. This typeface also presents variable glyphs for the vowels, to show how migration is not a static process and how immigrants constantly evolve, change, and adapt to the culture surrounding them.
