Populaire is Rising Star from MyFonts October newsletter! What an awesome surprise!
The font is also doing very well as webfont, it’s already a webfont bestseller.
And speaking of bestseller, guess who was ranked #2 at MyFonts? :)
Excerpt from the newsletter:
“Populaire is the latest offering from PintassilgoPrints, a two-person Brazilian outfit that specializes in spirited display fonts with a playful, handcrafted feel. The font was inspired by the electrifying posters made at the ‘People’s Workshop’ (Atelier Populaire) during the May 1968 student revolt in Paris.
Populaire successfully mimics the energy of that period’s hand-drawn and silkscreened posters, bringing freshness and energy to headlines and slogans. The typeface comes with four exchangeable glyphs for each letter, resulting in a flexible font that looks as lively and spontaneous as real hand-lettering. As part of the font, there is also a rich set of ornaments and pictures — abstract, ornamental and revolutionary.”
