Some folks say we’re too prone to hyperbole in these font descriptions, but we can’t help ourselves some times. And this is one of those times. YWFT Psychosis is THE CRAZIEST OpenType font we have ever released. No joke, you will swear that the OpenType controls themselves are possessed of a human brain as they change and morph about you. (No surprise there, since it was the Shaolin type-monks at PintassilgoPrints that took care of the business.) ↵↵This is a monster, with a deep emotional character too modern to be evil, yet too peripheral to be fully kind. Any situation where darkness or mystery needs to be heralded, let this Psychosis take over.
I started designing Ingra in 2007, as a derivative of a typeface specifically drawn for newspapers’ info-graphics. The earlier design of the typeface was a narrower, made in order to optimise the use of space in a newspaper setting. After a few years, I came up with the wider version for a broader range of uses, since designers already used it in different ways. After a few attempts, I left the old fonts behind and I decided to redraw it as a brand new typeface. The resulting typeface has a strong connection to its ancestor in terms of functionality, but it has a different character.
Begum is a Latin display serif typeface with contrast. With an ultra-contemporary appearance, its characters share DNA with classic Anglo-Dutch types like Caslon, Fleischmann or Times. The family shines in shorter-length texts, multi-line article introductions, and even on packaging. Begum is part of a larger family that supports also Devanagari and Tamil scripts.
Latex was initially a single multi-script all-cap font commissioned in 2012 by a company we can't name, to market a billion-dollar superhero movie we also can't name. A year later the commission grew to include a shaded variant and a set of DIY-like fonts, with different layering possibilities for dimensional manipulation.
Aesthet is a sans serif type family of 4 weights. Based on the personal experience of rural living, Aesthet is a reflection to embrace simple, community and nature inspired lifestyle. The idea created during experimental exploration demonstrates the evolutionary transition between the handmade and conventional typeface. The challenge of retaining natural essence of the individual approach on one hand and producing a functional text based font on the other was the driving force behind the design process.

Tita is for my grandmother Hebe. Arrabalera, impertinent. It refers to letters of milonga, which have become the lettering Buenos Aires. He imagines in Paris at the Moulin Rouge. On. Funny. Amorosa. Evokes Tita Merello, and my grandmother singing. Argentina to the core. To say shot and caramel ... passionately !. Her curves play with the polyrhythm of gestural calligraphy that my teacher taught me, Silvia Cordero Vega. Script Tita Tita now, because it’s pedigree.

Burford is a font family that I sketched while traveling through Europe. I was mesmerized by all the unique typography that was showcased throughout the five countries I visited. Inspired by all that I had seen, I found myself spending 4-5 hours per day in Amsterdam’s Vondel Park drawing characters. Once back in the states I digitalized Burford, deciding it would make for a beautiful layer-based font.

Nova Caere has been studied for alternating upper and lower case inside the words of the text, so as to reinforce their expressive content.
Stylistic variations that combine particular couples of letters have been developed, as well as some descender traits have been highlighted that can be employed to characterize words and phrases.
