What's the typeface used for the headlines "corpo perfeito", "sexy", etc?

Thank you!

It might be overused in the UK, but I still think this is one tasty type family. Totally yummy...

Merci, Yves!
It's not used at all here. And it's indeed very nice. When I saw it I was surprised because the feel is much like what I have in mind for a type project that should show up in the Critique section sometime this year.

Thanks again :)

You are very welcome, Gabriel. :^)

Could that be a custom weight that's used on the magazine? I don't see it on the Veer website. Looks like a black, or ultra weight...

Bald Condensed's picture

Possibly. Maybe Nick chimes in to clarify this.

I'm surprised no-one's said it... that girl is hot.

Certainly true.

If I could walk around with Photoshop filters applied I'd be hot too!

Sorry. I'll slip away now and let you back to your laciviousness.

Bald Condensed's picture

Very right, Tiff. I'd rather have a real woman.


Hey, I actually have one! :-)

Girl? Oh, look, a girl! I didn't realize there was anything but type on that cover. :D

I know someone who knows someone who works in the magazine... I'll try to find out.

Yes, that is a weight of Nubian I didn't do. I don't know who did, but I do know that only Brazilian Cosmo use it (thankfully). I can't say I'm entirely happy with the look of it.

But sometimes one designs a typeface and releases it, then it's in use in some ad campaign or other, and you think 'OH MY GOD! - Did I do THAT?' (I'm talking about Ryanair/Houschka.)

It might be overused in the UK - Huh? Where? I've hardly seen it anywhere.
But talking of overuse - Has anyone seen Brazilian Cosmo - it's the only typeface in the whole magazine. Too much!

Thanks for the praise Yves!

Don't ask me, I live in Belgium! :^D A Brit once told me, when I was considering using it for some job I don't remember. I should've known you can never trust those islanders... :^P

BTW Is that allowed by your EULA? I think I'd be kinda cross if someone added extra weights to a design of mine (in the highly improbable case I'd have designed a typeface of course).

Not a Corpo Perfeito then?

Thanks for chiming in Nick. You do great work. Maybe you should approach them about reworking the types for them?

Nick Cooke's picture

Thanks Chris.

I think I will not approach them, as I don't really like going over old ground.
Having said that, I was working on adapted versions of one of my typefaces for nearly a year, and it can get ever so slightly tedious after a few months.

But I've so much NEW stuff that I never get to finish off anyway, fortunately I'm in the position of usually having too much work, so it looks like it will be ages before I shall be able to release any of my own new stuff.

Also I have a strict policy of no evening or weekend work as I want to relax occasionally too! (nor do I want to go blind staring at a screen 24/7).

Makes sense Nick, not going over the old ground. I've been wanting to implement a no evenings/weekends policy myself, but haven't been able to do it yet. As far as your new stuff goes I understand. I've been wanting to design a typeface for ages, and I've got probably 50 pages of sketches and ideas, but my graphic design work is paying the bills, so it has to wait I guess...
