About Demetria Font Family
Demetria is a font created in 2012 by Carlos Fabián Camargo and works to form words and headlines with medieval expressiveness. Thus his concept mix uncial, Roman and italic letters resulting serifs some here and there, extended width and high amount of contrast between thick and thin strokes. That way its vigorous ups and downs are higher than its “x” height, highlighting it as a font with regular caliber,outstanding to design headlines with strong proportions and texture.
Consequently, typographic and aesthetic possibilities of Demetria are visually appealing by its chaotic forms that are embedded and remain fixed in the minds of its viewers; also, “Demetria Pro” has OpenType features such as “Swash”, “Titling”, “Discretionary Ligatures”, “Standard Ligatures”, Ordinals, Fractions and Superscript that make shine what is written by their abstract shapes resembling elongated paths of black ink diluted in water. This font also works in software without opentype features, so it is recommended to use the remaining files NON-PRO.
In short, the expressiveness and mysticism of Demetria is reaffirmed with some capital letters with lower height designed to be interchangeable with similar metrics to lowercase but aesthetically different.Thus the font mimics strong imperfections and splashes that get slim or grow depending on their degree of spontaneity. In that sense Demetria is recommended to compose words, phrases and typographic textures in graphic design projects related to epic, historical or legendary matters.
is a trademark of 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.
