Xaloc typeface designed by Tiponautas was selected as one of the text fonts of the month (June-2015).
Xaloc was designed for editorial use in books, magazines and newspapers. This typeface family contains different font versions for different optical sizes; Caption, Text, Subhead and Display, all of them with different x-height proportions and contrast. Its design approach enhances text flow and continuous reading. Xaloc is the Catalonian name from the Mediterranean wind that comes from the Sahara and reaches hurricane speeds in North Africa and Southern Europe.
As type designers we feel lucky when our fonts are chosen to be used and even proud when they are used well helping to bring to life or enhance a design concept. This year we had the opportunity to see our Lab Sans Pro in an exciting new medium of exposure; the Sci-Fi movie Ex Machina directed by Alex Garland recently released in theaters worldwide.
If you are in Valencia, Spain next June you can’t miss the exhibition “Cada letra cuenta una história” at MuVIM, Museu Valencià de la Il.lustració i de la Modernitat about type design in Spain since 1990. You will find some of Tiponautas typefaces together with masterpieces from great Spanish type designers!
