Let’s play with something fresh and bold!
Cuatro is a all caps font created with the 70s and the work of Othmar Motter in mind, but also some psychedelic influence in its shapes. And I think Cuatro is a good mix of all these influences.
It all started in 2019 when I decided to do the 36 days of type challenge. It all started with an A and as I was not sure where to go, I did several drawings and ended up doing something from a square shape. From that shape, I decided to cut into it just like in butter to give the letter its signification.
I love designing A so as I was pretty happy with it, I continued each day with the same brief: create a letter from a square shape.
After 36 days I could have a complete alphabet. Then I decided to rework some letters as I was not totally happy with them and decided to do a font out of it. I did name it Cuatro, just like the 4 squares of the initial shape.
Cuatro has a strong 70s and psychedelic influence but can easily be used for branding and logo. Check the images above to find out different uses I came with.
