New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
After a long (but very beautiful...)path I'm about to consider finished the first weight of Amarantino. But I want some feedback from the community of well in(formed) typeface and typography designers.
Amarantino ExtraLight has been developed over a period of 10 months (January to October 2008) as a sans serif versatile family with clean visual presence. The family is still in development and it will be formed by 5 weights (ExtraLight, Light, Regular, Bold, ExtraBold) and italics designed to communicate confidence and authority.
As always, existing designs have often been the source of inspiration for the creations of new ones. Amarantino is no exception and similarities can be found in the Sebastian Lester Soho™ typeface. My goal was not to copy but respect this source and turn my creation into something unique and with personal flavour.
The name Amarantino comes from the natural born from the city of Amarante in Portugal. The author is an Amarantino.
Amarantino is suitable for a variety of applications including medical, finance, transport, culture and high tech industries.
Thanks in advanced
