Navaja Font is a very few letter types with the context of grunge style fonts offer hierarchies to differentiate words in sentences or paragraphs. With Navaja I developed a font family that meets this need. This family is useful to organize the information into a hierarchy with an eroded look. Its central idea mixes grotesque, geometric and humanistic letter conventions. This way, Navaja is a grunge-sans with dense proportions to make graphic design with eroded character. Its main purpose appeared when one of my customers asked me for a t-shirt design for a fan club of an important football player. For this reason its starting point were stained and muddy letters characterizing the toughness and coldness of the sport.
Manuel Corradine and Carlos Fabián Camargo G. share the pleasure for the old fashioned signature of Bogotá’s (Colombia) La Candelaria historical neighborhood. Inspired by this colonial period’s house signs they developed the Candelaria family with 6 variations that supplement each other to achieve great impact.
