About this font family
La Portenia pays homage to the spirit of early 20th-century show card writers and type designers.
This face has two variations: La Portenia de Recoleta is slightly more formal and polite, while La Portenia de la Boca has longer, more extravagant flourishes and indulges in more interletter space. This showier variant is reminiscent of signs found in Buenos Aires.
Both have been designed by Diego Giaccone and Angel Koziupa, and engineered and expanded by Alejandro Paul.
