About Internacional Font Family
Internacional, inspired by the International Style, is a Latin American-flavored neo-grotesque sans serif typeface made with organic ingredients and sweetened with organic sugar and chocolate.
Internacional is well-suited for corporate identity, branding, publishing projects, logotypes, magazines and advertising.
Its large x-height and small difference between x-height and cap-height make it a high-impact font, ideal for powerful headings, while providing legibility. Internacional was designed for use with short and mid-length paragraphs that require a balanced type color. Internacional is an extended width font with rounded forms and angled terminal ends, in characters such as “c” or “a”, which make it suitable for use in advertising and branding. The proportional relation in height between uppercase and lowercase letters may be useful when composing text in German language.
The Internacional font family comes in 7 weights with matching italics and includes an alternative version, with the same number of styles, yet it tastes differently.
Special thanks to everyone in the Latinotype Team (especially to Rodrigo Fuenzalida) for their support, help with corrections and digital editing.
About Los Andes
Located in Concepción, Chile, Los Andes was established in 2011 by Daniel Hernandez, Miguel Hernandez and Luciano Vergara as a spin-off of LatinoType. Their goal was simple: to make typefaces that would simplify the job of the designers who used them. The young foundry published its first typeface, Pantano, that same year and the rest, as they say, is history.
With talented designers such as Mendoza Vergara, Daniel Hernández, Luciano Vergara, and Miguel Hernández in its ranks, Los Andes has created a library full of vast variations including everything from bestselling headliner typefaces like Darwin to grunge-inspired rustic families like Pantano.
“Our typefaces tell stories,” Luciano says, “we are inspired by travel, nature, experiences and tastes when we design typefaces.” One of their more recent releases, Garden, was inspired by the cheerful and warm people the designers encountered when visiting Brazil in 2013.
