Montserrat is a (free/open source) geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Julieta Ulanovsky. The forms were inspired by signage from herneighborhood in Buenos Aires. Julieta wanted to capture the beauty of urban typography from the first half of the twentieth century.
As urban development changes this place, it will never return to its original form and loses forever the designs that are so special and unique. To draw the letters, I rely on examples of lettering in the urban space. Each selected example produces its own variants in length, width and height proportions, each adding to the Montserrat family.
