Tuesday Type Treat: Andes Font by Latinotype

Andes, available from T.26, is a new display face designed by Latinotype, a digital type foundry established in 2007 in Concepción, Chile.

Andes, designed by Daniel Hernández, is a display typeface that has neo-humanist characteristics. Its different terminals, among other elements, give it a look of mixed typography. It comprises 8 variants, ranging from Thin to Black, each of the same x-height. This typeface contains additional italic glyphs (a, y, z, g) that help to emphasise text or words. Andes is based on the design of Merced and both of them share several features. This type is well-suited for use in retail, magazines, logotypes, books, etc.
