Quintana-Font designs, publishes and distributes carefully designed typeface families tailored to the diverse needs of today's visual communication.
☞ We design new type families with a focus on creativity, cultural diversity, technology, and functionality. Our projects are usually inspired by different artistic and cultural manifestations, which provide us a conceptual, aesthetic, and social point of views.
☞ We develop typographic and pictographic systems that can be in constant expansion, we are interested in long term projects, as well as short and specific ones: we apply the latest technology available to optimize the production and manufacture of fonts, allowing us more time to reflect on our work and test different possibilities and ideas.
☞ We love taking on new design challenges, listening to ideas and thinking of new possibilities to expand our projects. If you are interested in applying for work, proposing an idea or asking us about our licenses, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
During these last years we have worked with different peoples, collectives, institutions, companies and corporations, either selling them licenses, making a customized versions of a typeface or creating a custom font family or pictogram system. We also have involved in several editorial design, visual identity, and lettering projects based on our typographic work.
It is always a pleasure to collaborate and work with creative people open to new ideas, if there is something wonderful and fascinating about typography is that it is a tool with so many possibilities and options to make beautiful things.
