OldTown typeface

Result of a typographic safari through the historic center of Santiago de Compostela made in 2015.

The intention was to portray the diversity and variety (beautiful or not) of the typographic reality of the city and look for some identity in it. Trying to cover all the possible ranges (commercial signs, graffiti, town hall plaques ...) and without distinguishing between emblematic and temporary, this alphabet appears, which is something like a typographic picture of a specific moment of the old town.
To this day, some of those signs no longer exist, others have been there for a century, and others will not last more than a year.

Welcome to OldTown.
