Dual Tone
Publication Design
Dual Tone explores the coincidental and unique linguistic similarities between the Japanese and Spanish language. Through this study, I was able to hold a space where Spanish and Japanese could co-exist together. On a personal level, this book cherishes my parent's experience of communicating with one another as two people with different native tounges. But on a broader scope, this is an experience unique to someone who understands the intricacies of how a bi-lingual person thinks, which I've never been able to put into words.

This book features 45 word pairings organized by the Japanese alphabet, a background on this project, and an interview with my parent’s on cultural and language barriers.  Will be available for purchase later this year :-)
