About VLNL Mais Font Family

The design of VLNL Mais started out as a thought experiment – "How would it look if you dressed up FuturaBlack in LatinWide serifs?” DBXL drew up the first sketches on graph paper in 2014. Although the concept looked promising enough, it ended up dormant in a desktop folder. To be resurfaced recently when covid-19 started spreading and we were asked to all stay home.

The final design ended up with a distinct latino flavour due to the long spikey serifs. They look like tortilla chips. And as maize is the main ingredient in many South-American and specifically Mexican dishes – tortillas, burritos, nachos, tamales, tacos – a name was quickly found. VLNL Mais was designed by DBXL, and can be used for logos, headlines, flyers or posters (and not just for Mexican restaurants). It can be found in the VetteLetters vegetable section.

About VetteLetters is fascinated by kebab shops, local chinese restaurants and fish-and-chips joints – not just the food but especially the shopfront typography. If all the other type foundries are like haute cuisine restaurants, then VetteLetters is the font-imbiss in the world of exclusive and expensive font foundries. VetteLetters, based in Amsterdam, loves food and loves fonts. So let’s introduce our chefs: After a wonderful career as a dishwasher, assistant cook, some kind of designer, and last but not least type designer, Donald® Roos is now one of VetteLetters CEOs. Donald DBXL Beekman is “the other Donald” and also the other CEO. DBXL produces as many typefases as Prince makes records. Jacques “Sardines” Le Bailly also known as the Baron von Fonthausen is Chief Type Tech. Dev. Dept. and we have Martin “TwoPoints” Lorenz, baking his fonts in the lovely climate of Barcelona. The latest addition to the VetteLetters stable is designer Henning Brehm aka “Design Tourist” hailing from Berlin.
