Caminito font family
Caminito font family by the Colombian type designer John Vargas Beltrán is a layered decorative typeface designated for your sparkling titles, fancy display texts, and vivid ads with genuine Latino-vintage flavour.
The typeface Caminito (“little path” in Spanish) is named after an alley in the picturesque Buenos Aires neighbourhood which received its worldwide fame after being sung in the eponymous 1920s tango by Carlos Gardel. Caminito alley is now a street museum striking the visitors with its patchwork of brightly coloured facades, vintage street lamps, and art deco signs. Here is the home of the Fileteado Porteño, traditional Argentinean art craft, typical for the Buenos Aires inhabitants (i.e. Porteños) characterised by use of stylized climbing plants and other floral ornaments in bright coloured letters. They could be seen on signs, vehicles, or plates with poetic phrases, sayings and aphorisms.
Caminito typeface carries all that vitality and vibrant colouring in its 10 layered styles offering countless possibilities for combining base fonts with decorative ones plus one extra font – Ornamentos. Available are some OpenType features such as stylistic alternates, standard ligatures and fractions.
