Graphic designer Miguel Nieto shares his typography, Rude Font, with the Domestika community for free
Miguel Nieto (@miguelnieto) created Rude Font to fill the need for a typography inspired by the ads at the turn of the 20th century. He imagined a modern adaptation of the classic advertising publications with a touch of street style. The typography found its shape and now we can download it for free as members of the Domestika community.
The font was designed with Adobe Illustrator and FontLab and Nieto had a clear idea of what he wanted from the outset. Today, Nieto’s personal project has gone far beyond where he ever imagined:
"One day, while walking down the street, I noticed the T-shirt worn by a boy who was walking in front of me and I saw that they had used the Rude typeface. I approached him to ask where he had bought it and was surprised that it was the name of an important textile multinational, with which, by the way, I got in touch. This was a great joy for me because, when you do a personal project, you don't expect it to go so far."
This is the first typography Miguel ever dared to design, but not the last. His next challenge is to create a font script influenced by the work of Joluvian, an assignment he’ll get to work on once he finishes the Design of Calligraphy Logos course on Domestika.
