Hetilica Bold is a typeface developed as a final project for my 2009 workshop class in college.
It is based on the hand-written license signs used across some of the alcohol selling shops in the province of Cartagena, Chile; a small beach-side town of small population.
After a trip to the area, several pictures were taken to decide the fonts to develop based on just a few glyphs found.
Ulteriorly, we were asked to develop a full typography, type catalogue, specimen, website and several pieces of type-oriented memorabilia.
Hetilica Bold is now completely available to you for free in TrueType format and you are more than welcome to download it from its own mini-site, or if you prefer, directly from here.
If you use it, I’d love to see some images of it in action.
