Catorze27 Style 1™ - Out now!

Hey there, everyone!

Catorze27 is a typeface inspired by northern Portuguese modernist lettering.

Wrought iron is a widely used element on Portuguese architecture and, as such, the typeface started after collecting several photographs of modernist iron signage in several cities in the north of Portugal, specially in Espinho, Porto, Ponte de Lima and Viana do Castelo.

As a result, Catorze27 / Style 1 is the first of 3 styles, featuring 570+ glyphs, 7 weights, case-sensitive forms, 2 styles of numerals in 2 sizes, Greek (Monotonic), Cyrillic and supports most of the Latin Unicode ranges.

Nice one. Congratulations!
By the way, could you shed some light on the name? 14-27?

@Riccard0: Thank you! Well, I live in Espinho, Portugal. Like New York, the city streets have numbers, not names. So, the first wrought iron pics I took were from door numbers in a house between the 14th and 27th street. :)
