A display typeface for fancy headlines.
This typeface is a clear example of the explosion in technology that occurred in the 1990s, spreading into the sphere of font design, a task that until then had been restricted to a very small number of highly specialised professionals. This typography came about as a result of experimenting with hand-drawing, without using curves, with the Fontographer font editor. The result is a font in which every letter seems to have been cut out of black paper, hence its name (Cortada means cut in English). This was my first project as member of Type-Ø-Tones and now it has been totally updated and renamed as Cortada Dos.
Cortada has been used for the children’s Cocobooks collection.
