"It was a dilemma to be solved from start: The intended graphic complexity was a proposal in conflict with the graphic synthesis that requires the digital fonts format to work properly."
For that reason, all of the artworks were drawing directly on digital support, in order to keep the maximum control over the graphic synthesis and the purity of the resultant vectorial lines.
Despite the technical limitations to turn on drawings into type fonts, it was tried to maintain a high level of detail.
This way, the drawings allow you to make close ups and framings, at your will."
Linotype Tangomaniacs contains two weights: Linotype Tangomaniacs Day and Linotype Tangomaniacs Night.
Victor Garcia about the characteristics of these two font weights:
"Tangomaniacs Day shows tango dancing couples in broad daylight in a realistic, detailed and expressive way. Tangomaniacs Days displays mostly of the people characters with half closed eyes, to emphasize the atmosphere of sensuality and eroticism – macho man/woman- inherent to tango.
Linotype Tangomaniacs Night shows tango dancing silhouette couples in half light in an evocative, synthetic and intimist way. Tangomaniacs Night shows the same people characters in graphic synthesis.
