About Flaminia Font Family

Flaminia is a typeface family of 4 members designed by Carlos Fabián Camargo G. The central idea started as Dingbats and titles labeled with fine-tipped brushes and flat tip for graphic design related restaurant menus, instructions, packaging, food containers and labels. Thus began the process of drawings and letters integrated by shapes and counterblocks that seem inaccurate yet but at the same time clean and attractive. For this reason each variable suggests fresh brushstrokes that combine ideas from Roman and italic calligraphy. Flaminia members work separately or together by solving needs in different scenarios. This will enhance its properties in order to control and diagram titles, subtitles and short paragraphs with an effusive and manuscript character. Flaminia is useful for generating a flavor of "hand lettered by skilled artists lettering." In conclusion, Flaminia Regular and Italic are used to write short paragraphs. His ascending and downs are lower that the X height. Its width is imperceptibly condensed to save horizontal space. Its smooth lines and finishes simulating a crescent moon have been made with fine-tipped brush. The contrast between thick and thin has medium intensity. Its complement is an ideal italic to emphasize words and phrases. Its conceptual characteristics are similar with foundation's handwriting, except for his companion who takes ideas from the ornamental italic calligraphy. Flaminia Black is compact and ideal for ranking information such as words and titles. Its personality is based on ornamental penmanship italics mixed with humanistic ideas outlined with contrast-type, flat-tipped brush thickness. Its overall width is slightly condensed, rising and falling are short compared to an exaggerated X height. Its smooth lines and terminations as in a crescent moon simulate the path of a broad brush. Its amount of contrast between strokes have average intensity. In brief, push to the limit parameters such as the type and amount of contrast, size, backward, forward, overall width, etc. And finally, Flaminia Dingbats offers three sets of different illustrations, a total of almost 90 drawings useful in communications related to: Food, Clothes and Sketchy. Each carefully wrought through research, testing, analytical design, visual strategy and high-definition of Bezier paths, optimizing time and work to their users. And in conclusion, I have plans to continue expanding the family with more complete versions in the future.

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.
