About ChefScript Font Family

Chef Script is an experimental font designed by Carlos Fabian Camargo G. Its fantasy design contains 1463 glyphs to compose words, phrases and short messages on small and large sizes. The idea was born in a sketchbook that was perfected again by hand and achieving "non-neutral drawings" on tracing paper. With bezier digitization the empty and full parts of letters appeared with soft and eloquent curves as calligraphic result produces optimal readability. Chef Script combines warmth and good humor running in countless design applications such as labels and base plates, covers, posters, movie titles, seals and any printed design that needs an unusual typographic tool. In that sense, Chef Script is influenced by Speedball lettering manual (1957), Ross F. George. The illustrative nature of "ChefScript-complete" does not look anything like the traditional type design hierarchies. Therefore offers 7 hierarchical resource groups to design comfortable contexts flavored with illustration and typography: • ChefScript-Basic: Letters with horizontal and vertical thrifty proportions mimic an uninterrupted calligraphy brush made with flat tip. Thus its letters have ascenders and descenders strokes perpendicular to its base line and equal to the height of the lowercase. • ChefScript-Swashes: Letters expressive and unique flourishes to design highlighted words or phrases. • ChefScript-Caps: Uppercase with lowercase height give the impression of interrupted uppercase italics writing within what is written with uninterrupted lowercase letters producing strong contrast within a paragraph fragment. • ChefScript-Containers: Container drawings designed to exchange with infinite possibilities each order so that its inferior serve to store information written or drawn. • ChefScript-Dingbats: Pictograms that communicate: kitchen, chef, restaurant, food, etc. • ChefScript-Numbers: Bulky and useful numbers to highlight prices or figures containing points or dollar signs. • Chef Script-Words: Predesigned words with uninterrupted letters diagonally leveled highlighting various thoughts in writing.

About Andinistas

The word "Andinistas" roughly translates to "people devoted to the Andes." In Venezuela, it is the word used to describe the people who climb the slopes of Pico Bolívar, the country's highest mountain. Carlos Fabián Camargo Guerrero, the founder of Andinistas Fonts, found this name to be interesting because of its resonance and relationship with the unknown.Carlos is one of the first designers from Colombia or Venezuela to be able to make it as a full-time type designer. His experience of living in both countries has allowed him to tap into their colorful visual cultures and bring aspects of each of them into his designs. He is proud of both countries, as they have been an inexhaustible source of ideas to him.Carlos joined MyFonts in 2006. Since then, his designs have evolved from a streetwise, sassy grunge style to a series of energetic and personable scripts and display fonts. He says that in typeface design, we can never say we have learned enough. When we look at old classics, we realize that what we need to learn is inexhaustible. We never get anything definitively.Today, Carlos feels that the word "Andinistas" also has a valuable meaning for him personally. It has taken many years of experience before he slowly received some recognition for his foundry. This has required profound conviction and the will to surpass oneself. So the word combines concepts like spectacular beauty and adventure with the idea of overcoming challenges and getting to the top with work and creative effort.
