About Planet Express Font Family
Family type designed by Felipe Calderón. This type is a display with a modern style and a different and innovative concept.
The development of this type was a challenge because it was set out from the begining as a script font with ornaments and complements, where the round shapes do not have prominence in the result. Planet Express is an interesting job from the aesthetic point of view, it works for big scale texts and contains little shadow-cuts in each character to give it more personality and stand out among other fonts from this gender. I hope this new project works to solve issues in design.
Planet Express is composed of Regular & Italics, it has 250 intelligent ligatures to produce the best signs in big scale, it is perfect for branding and works very well with the geometric complements. It is designed with programming in opentype: Ligatures, Discretionary ligatures, Stylistic Alternates, Stylistic set 01, Stylistic set 02, Stylistic set 03, Stylistic set 04, Stylistic set 05, Stylistic set 06, Stylistic set 07, Stylistic set 08 & Stylistic set 09, multiple language support and a complete set of extras like arrows, catchwords, flags, emblems, hands, fleurons & crossed elements.
Planet Express can be used in different ways, each character pretends to cover the needs in any circumstance where it is used. It is funny to write words and play with the complements. It also works with current concepts in graphic design like sports, cars, hip hop, music, social network, skateboarding and more.
Everybody can use this font, it works with different languages like italian, french, portuguese, danish, german and so forth.

About Estudio Calderon
Located in Cali, Colombia, Estudio Calderón was founded in 2010 by local designer Felipe Calderón. “Our business started in 2010 as a hobby for drawing letters and a path to discover different tools,” he says. “Along the way, the brush script lettering appeared and I fell in love with it and its traces, that is why most of our fonts are designed based on this brush.”
He made his debut on MyFonts with Letrista Script, which was influenced by the art of sign painting. The typeface was featured in the April, 2013 edition of Rising Stars, and has been one of the foundry’s best selling fonts. It was also chosen to be part of the fifth biennial of Latin-American typography Tipos Latinos 2015.
Since then, Felipe has continued to find success drawing inspiration from this style that he knows and loves. One of his most recent designs, Hollie Script, pays tribute to brush lettering styles from the 1950’s and 1960’s. The script has been honored by the Type Directors Club New York 2015 with the Certificate of Typographic Excellence.
Estudio Calderón is a quiet office where inspiration comes daily. With both a graphic design and lettering department in the studio, the designers work together to articulate the fonts, lettering and graphics that they produce.www.estudiocalderon.comInstagram
