The lack of research in the creative process does not allow generating expressive typography. Not taken into account variables such as directionality, contrast, tonalities, among others and it has not been taken to the field of illustration, as it proposed in this project.

Expressiveness contributes to building semiotic meanings, that is to say, through building symbols, signs, relationships with each other and rhetorical resources can strengthen the communication and cultural value of the characters. Typography reaches high levels of expression when working with a technical and investigative support.
