Digitalarts Say (16 Page/ Digital Arts October 2008): Scratchy perfection: Fans of Gonzo illustrator Ralph Steadman will find plenty to like in Heleodora, the newest font from Andinistas. Available in three different typefaces, each more slanted than the last, the font has an intense, hand-drawn quality that makes it perfect for adding a little anarchy to your designs. Andinistas is an independent type foundry and graphic design company, founded in Venezuela and now based in Colombia; it specializes in custom and retail fonts. Buy the font from $39.95 (about £20) from MyFonts. www.andinistas.net
Alcira in “Rising Stars, May 2008: Andinistas is a Colombian-Venezuelan venture: the foundry’s name refers to the Andes mountains. With Alcira, founder Carlos Fabián Camargo Guerrero brings us another wild, funky script font. Based on an earlier font called Rosadelia, it explores calligraphic shapes in advanced stages of irregularity and chaos. If legibility isn’t an issue at all, try Alcira 3: it’s as narrow as Alcira 2 but it’s a tad more self-destructive and comes with automatic stains and blotches. Try reading that!
