  • Poly (2011, Google Font Directory) is a medium contrast condensed serif font. He explains: Poly was my final project for the postgraduate certificate in typeface design (University of Buenos Aires). Poly was originally designed for aglutinative languages, (which is why it's wide) specifically a South American indigenous language (Wayuunaiki). I paid a lot of attention to the "diacritics zone" to harmonize and unclutter the upper zones of the lowercase letters. The Wayuu language or wayuunaiki is spoken by 305,000 indigenous Wayuu people in northeastern Colombia and nothwestern Venezuela on the Guajira Peninsula.

Nedo Mion Ferrario

Designer and artist, b. Milan, 1926, d. Caracas, 2001. From MyFonts: Several Venezuelan generations had acquired very strong design, typographic and drawing knowledge due to the historical and artistic heritage left by Master Nedo Mion Ferrario. He spent big part of his life teaching and working on design. His passion for impossible figures and geometric optic illusions were the most valuable characteristics of his work. Most of his knowledge was obtained from his father, Emilio Mion Vianello, who dedicated his life to wood carve, a high profile job those day in Italy. Emilio studied in the Brera Academy in Milan and Nedo studied in the Commercial and Technical Institute of Milan between 1936 and 1940, and then in the Fine Arts Academy in the same city. At the end of the Second Word War, both of them decided to leave Italy due to the political situation in those days. Encouraged by the immigration Venezuelan politics they arrived in Caracas in 1950. Wiki.

His work inspired Carlos Camargo Guerrero to create the Escheresque font Denedo (2001-2007). According to Camargo, Denedo is a font based in one of the impossible alphabets created by the Italian graphic designer Nedo Mion Ferrario during the 60's and 70's in Caracas, Venezuela, South America. Michael Parson designed the prismatic typeface Nedo in 2013 based on Ferrario's work.
