MOTE, a black-a-licious type.

Mote is the first typeface from Latinotype, a small new foundry based on latinamerican culture & local vernacular lettering.

Mote, a black-a-licious type is a modern interpretation of latinamerican lettering founded in Santiago de Chile "Mote" drink store.
The "Mote with Huesillos" is a traditional Chilean drink of sugary teaish water with a dried peach and bulgar wheat. We take this drink as a lovely chilean icon to represent our "Muy Delicious" lettering tradition in yummy tasty letters.

- A unique & friendly black typeface
- Up to 300 yummy glyph caps!
- Opentype / Western European ready
- Postcript flavoured curves

I’m going to spend the next month showing up for meetings just so I can try to get someone to spec this typeface for a job. Because, it’s, ya know, FAB!

It's about time the general public had access to the talents of Miguel Hernandez. For years he's shown his abilities in pixel lettering, but I think his true calling lies in vector type. Mote is a great first launch.

I'm a big fan of Miguel's faces, ever since I saw many of his early ones in the Critique forum, maybe 3 or 4 years ago...

¡Buena suerte con el nuevo emprendimiento, Miguel! Welcome back!
