Designers: Yai Salinas & Tano Veron
Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
About the face: We’re in the middle of summer (and in the middle of accepting submissions for the international design awards). And to celebrate the heat of it all, we found a beautiful and full of life typeface by Yai Salinas & Tano Veron: CARIOCA.
This unique and colorful typeface perfectly embodies the home of both its designers, Buenos Aires. As one commenter said, “Exquisite work! … Your experimental colorful typeface SINGS! Dances! Wonderful work!”
Perfect for posters and headlines, the downside is CARIOCA’s file type: the free download comes as an EPS file instead of an FTS. Aside from maybe slowing down your design process a bit, this free font will brighten up any poster or flyer. Right now CARIOCA is free for personal use, but for commercial use just contact the creator.

Developing your design portfolio can be challenging at best. It should be able to stand on it’s own, but also should be enhanced by your ability to present it well. Roberto Blake wants to help you reach your portfolio #goals, show off your communication skills and highlight the skills you have to offer a potential client or employer.
