Carlos Campos’ Aljaraz Font is the perfect way to add a touch of fun and rebellion to your design projects. Inspired by the “Fat Face” letters of the early 19th century, Aljaraz features bold, curvy letters with a hint of psychedelic distortion. This makes it ideal for creating 60s retro designs or simply catching attention with short, powerful displays of text. This versatility makes Aljaraz excellent for branding, package design, logo design, social media, visual identity, books and magazines, posters, educational materials, film titles, digital artwork, music promo, 1960s and 1970s vintage designs, and more. Sporty and bold, groovy and nostalgic, Aljaraz is what’s happening. In the words of creator Carlos Campos, “There’s plenty of ways to make Aljaraz your own. So let this groovy font inspire you to create something truly original!”
Aljaraz comes to us from Cuchi qué tipo. Is Cuchi qué tipo really just one guy named Carlos Campos? Because this studio is punching far above its weight with striking, unforgettable designs. Consider the funk-laden display font Miau. Here, Campos teases readability’s limits in exactly the right way: focusing the viewer more intently on the words and letters of this wonderful font. Well, as it turns out, Carlos Campos has the precise know-how to pull something like Miau off: he is a graphic designer and typography teacher at EASD Jose Nogue de Jaen in Andalusia, Spain. Campos promotes “cuchis,” informal events that promote typography culture. He also investigates and recovers street and letter signs through the town of Jaen. It is totally awesome, and you can see it here. We can’t wait for whatever’s next from this dedicated, passionate, creative designer!
