I just wanted to share a font that I discovered today that hasn't gotten any mention on this forum yet:
Is anyone else in love with it?
I'm also inlove with this type!
It's of Cesar Puertas from Colombia,
He is a great font designer and I had
the luck to meet him here in Uruguay.
Very nice person too.
PS: It's inspired on the brush lettering in Bogotá's buses.
Basic beginner question. What is Urbana used for? Where would it be used? Is this a text font?
Urbana actually was put up on Typophile's Critique section during its development:
Interesting, I did a search for "Urbana" and only got a mention of the Champaign/Urbana area of Illinois. Is there a better way to search than the search box at the top of this page?
J., I tightened the kerning and made the semi-bold into a friendly word mark for a logo. I could see it being used for other marketing and identity work.

Urbana is not for long passages of text. It’s better suited to headings and titles, perhaps for magazines, newspapers or even web use.
