Estudio de diseño Calderón in Chile had the work of two Chilean designers:

  • Daniel Hernández has some free fonts at Dafont and Font Squirrel. Klingspor link. His award-winning fonts include Stgotic textura (2006), Stgotic Fracktur (pixel blackletter), and the (free) unicase piano key font Pincoya Black (2008), which was based on Spanish Civil War poster, and won an award at Tipos Latinos 2010. He calls his ultra fat Roxy (2009) tipografia desde el culo del mundo.

    Hernandez Bold (2010, Sudtipos) has slabs, serifs, and plenty of round curves. It won an award at Tipos Latinos 2012.

    Rita (2010, Sudtipos) is an ultra-slab face inspired by the fat wood types. Merced (2011) is a thin monoline sans. Sanchez (2011, Latinotype and YWFT) is a slab serif family with a free weight. In 2013, he published the beautiful sequel, Sanchez Slab, which is patterned after Rockwell.

  • Javier Quintana created the smooth and delectable text family Berenjena in 2007. He also made the roundish display face Botota (2007), which is reminiscent of market signage in Santiago.
  • Monroe (2010, Sudtipos) is a swashy slab family. See it in action in this I Love New York poster.
  • Patagon (2011, Latinotype) is a rounded wood-inspired poster face done with Daniel Hernandez and Luciano Vergara.
  • Guadalupe (+Gota, 2011, Latinotype). A hairline didone family with sufficient contrast and frilliness to satisfy the fashion mags.
  • Andes (2011, Latinotype). This is a playful slightly swashy sans family. Followed by Andes Italic (2012) and Andes Condensed (2012). See also Andes Rounded (2014).
  • Bosque (2012) is a wood style family codesigned with Paula Nazal at Latinotype.
  • Magallanes (2012, Daniel Hernandez) is a contemporary neohumanist sans serif typeface family covering Ultra Light to Black. This typeface was followed by the 8-style Magallanes Essential (2012) and by Magallanes Condensed (2013).
  • Trend (2013). A layered type system done together with Paula Nazal Selaive. Followed by Trend Hand Made also in 2013.
  • With Eli Hernandez, Daniel Hernandez published the unicase typeface family Grota in 2013.
  • Roble (2013): A slab serif font family which Daniel places halfway between Andes and Sanchez. It is characterized by its clampy backbitten lower case c.
  • Together with Miguel Hernandez at Latinotype in 2014, Daniel Hernandez designed the 1930s sans family Arquitecta, which is promoted as an alternative for Futura, Kabel and Avant Garde. His Newslab (2014) family is a combination of Andes, Sanchez and Roble; the Regular and Italic styles are free.

The foundry became Hernández Type at some point. The fonts there, repeated from the former foundry, include Patagon, Merced, Hernandez Bold, Monroe, Pincoya Black Pro, Rita Bold and Fat, and Pincoya Black Free. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿
