Established by Miguel Hernández, Luciano Vergara, and Daniel Hernández, LatinoType began as Chile’s first digital type foundry and later evolved to become one of the most recognizable names in the world of typography. Their strong work ethic is one that keeps them moving ever forward, always keeping in mind the wise words of Pablo Picasso, “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”
And work, they do. LatinoType continuously strives to create high-performing type designs that are aesthetically beautiful, exceedingly functional, and incredibly versatile. They understand the needs of graphic designers and their typography meets those needs with every new release.
LatinoType regularly works with other graphic designers and typographers because to them, collaboration is everything. They value education and experience, and they don’t hold back in sharing their own with upcoming typographers. They foster a supportive atmosphere for anyone interested in the art of typography, and they often hold workshops that allow them to share what they know while helping to establish new careers in the field.
LatinoType designs lettersets for a contemporary global audience, while weaving its own cultural influences into its typography. One of its latest release on YouWorkForThem is Autor, a medium contrast sans serif designed by Luis Bandovas. Fascinated by the very shapes of letters, Luis has a sort of “crush” on “the simplicity of Swiss graphic design of the 60s.”
Labeled as “a clean, sharp sans,” Autor is anything but basic. Its beauty lies in its strong, contemporary architecture, featuring angled terminals that lend a truly modern feel to this instant classic.
Autor offers clarity and high legibility, even in small point, making it appropriate for the finer details of labels, product packaging, and business cards. With a family comprised of seven weights that range from Thin to Black with corresponding italics for each, Autor is well suited to a variety of projects, including headlines, editorials, publishing, body text, titling, corporate communications, logos, advertising, website design, presentations, and mobile applications.
Additional features of Autor include case sensitive forms, fractions, standard ligatures, ordinals, superscript, and stylistic alternates. Its multilingual support extends to Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Catalan, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Romanian, Pan African Latin, Dutch, Afrikaans, and Basic Greek, covering more than 200 languages for incredible global accessibility.
LatinoType currently offers more than 140 products through YouWorkForThem, a varied collection of serifs, sans serifs, scripts, and display fonts for a wide range of graphic design projects.
