Cuchi qué tipo
Graphic and type designer based in Jaén, Andalusia. Carlos investigates street signs and traditional lettersigns in his city for a university project called Rótulos chuléricos de Jaén. His web site, Cuchi qué tipo, is both a blog on type design (in Spanish) and a showcase for his own typefaces. His type designs:
Darkmode refers to white type on black background. It is generally understood that for white type on dark printed matter should be bolder (than its black on white counterpart), while white text on a black screen should be thinner as the screen spews white in the reader's direction. Dalton Maag, in its presentation of its Darkmode typeface family writes: There are well-known optical and psychological effects in design which result in text presented white-on-black being perceived as larger and bolder than the same text presented black-on-white. This presents a challenge for consistent visual hierarchy on different backgrounds, especially when designing for emissive displays.
Dalton Maag's Darkmode (2020-2021) is an adaptation of an earlier font by them, Stroudley, which was created for physical signage and wayfinding: Our [Dalton Maag's] aim for Darkmode was to translate Stroudley's fundamental characteristics of accessibility, readability, and legibility to on-screen reading, digital navigation, and electronic signage. Darkmode's open counters, tall x-height, humanist proportions, and clear and distinguishable characters all contribute to a comfortable reading experience, even at low resolutions or small sizes. The Darkmode family consists of eight static weights, ranging from Thin to Black, plus a variable font (VF) file, with both weight and darkmode [on/off] axes.

Winner of the Gerard Unger Scholarship 2021 (an award annually bestowed by Type Together) for her typeface Aeroplan (renamed from Flieger), which was developed while Nina was studying towards a BA in Communication Design at Augsburg University of Applied Science (Germany) under the supervision of Maurice Göldner. Aeroplan is a revival of a serif typeface found in a book about aircraft engines published by Waldheim-Eberle A.G. Wien-Leipzig in 1916.

The letterforms are based on the original, but they feature a contemporary digital sharpness and more regularity in the forms and contrasts. [Google] [More] ⦿
