Carlos de Toro emailed me with a lovely little note and a link to his website, more specifically a link to his gorgeous typeface, named Born. Carlos has clearly spent a lot of time, and put in a lot of love in the development and creation of his typeface, yet with all that Carlos is making Born a free download, but donations ARE obviously warranted I think.

In his words:

Carlos de Toro: "Born is much more than a typeface, it’s also a story; The one of my 2013. A story about moving to the big city, the result of meet great people from all parts of the world and their cultures too, the result of talks in classes, bars and trains… the result of sharing moments, experiences, knowledges… Born is the result of all these experiences and people: and now I’m sharing with you this piece of my story."
