About Garvo Font Family
Garvo is based on old Hollywood movie posters, vintage film credit designs and pays homage to Herb Lubalin's Serif Gothic font & lettering. This is why Garvo is named after the acclaimed international actress Greta Garbo.
The Garvo family comes in 6 weights (from Thin to Black) and includes 2 different subfamilies: Garvo and Garvo Poster. Garvo is perfect for short readable texts, such as advertising and packaging designs, while Garvo Poster brings a wide range of contextual alternatives which makes it perfect for high impact pieces. Both styles increase the overall family flavor with discretionary ligatures, small caps figures. The 12 styles of Garvo are perfectly well suited for branding projects, album covers, audiovisual related designs, magazines and layouts, among other uses.
BeJota is the name of my independent type foundry and graphic design studio. I focus on retail-based design within a wide range of styles from high functional fonts to vintage and ornamental families. I created this space for my own experimentation and further exploration in the field of type. Overall, I define my work as a mix between quality and playfulness, that puts together cultural aspects of Latin American and graphic design needs such as striking visuals, clear shapes and big personalities. Nonetheless, BeJota leaves space for another kind of unexplored project.I come from Santiago, Chile. Yet my studio it's currently based in Konstanz, Germany.
