I got to collaborate with my partner Steph on the design and packaging of their Kidrobot 8” Santa Muerte Dunny toy. Initially planned as part of Kidrobot’s Spiritus Dea 3” series, they invited Steph to design an 8” variant of the Santa Muerte design, which turned out amazing. We wanted this to feel as much like a shrine as possible, and Kidrobot gave us a long rope to make it happen. I got to use and explore type I don’t regularly get to play with — entirely from Latin American foundries, and of course, I got to use Steph’s amazing illustrations to complete the packaging.
Getting to make a toy for Kid Robot was mind-blowing for us — we’ve adored their work for so long and used to go on day-dates to the former NYC store as often as possible.
