Typemade [Santiago Orozco]

Santiago Orozco (b. 1981, Monterrey) is Typemade in Monterrey, Mexico. He is currently also working for DaniloBlack / Type Network as an information architect.

He created the free geometric typeface Josefin Sans (2010) using a small x-height---people have suggested it as a free alternative for Neutraface. Josefin Sans was followed by Josefin Slab [see this poster by Cauex Pascoa], and both were extended to many weights. Free downloads from the Google Font Directory.

In 2011, he published Dorsa (a modern interpretation of the ultra-condensed skyline typeface Empire (1937, Morris Fuller Benton, ATF) with some personal details thrown in), Antic, and Clark Hairline, a sans serif with a calligraphic touch. He explains: The idea to create this typeface was to make it geometric, elegant and kind of vintage, special for titling. It is based on 1927 Rudolf Koch's Kabel, 1930 Rudolf Wolf's Memphis, 1927 Paul Renner's Futura.

Typefaces from 2012: Antic Slab (Google Web Fonts: designed for use in the headlines of newspapers and magazines), Antic Didone (Google Web Fonts). Italiana (Google Fonts) was designed for use in the headlines of newspapers and magazines. It is inspired by the calligraphy of the Italian masters.

In 2015, Khaled Hosny and Santiago Orozco cooperated on the Latin / Arabic typeface Reem Kufi. Github link. Khaled, who designed the Arabic part, explains: Reem Kufi is a Fatimid-style decorative Kufic typeface, as seen in the historical mosques of Cairo. It is largely based on the Kufic designs of the late master of Arabic calligraphy, Mohammed Abdul Qadir, who revived this art in the 20th century and formalized its rules.
