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."
Born is a humanistic typeface that is based on traditional calligraphic forms, but with some new features in its endings, strokes and drops, that provide a more open, fresh and actual look. It also has a big X height, so it offers a high legibility even at small sizes.
Born typeface, born in Barcelona city at early 2013, bears the name of one of the most picturesque Barcelona districts, on the shores of the Mediterranean takes together the old and the traditional, and also the multicultural stuff and new trends, blending these in its narrow and winding streets, creating a symbiosis between tradition and modernity. This is a Mediterranean type, which it’s open to new times.
Regular Born includes a total of 262 glyphs: Uppercase, Lower case, Alternative glyphs of the above ones, normal Ligatures, Uppercase numerals and symbols and punctuation marks.
