For today’s inspiration, we are featuring one of the new popular OpenType Font which is a premium font collections. Retiro was made during 2006, for a magazine with more 1100 glyphs. Retiro designed by Jean François Porchez is exclusively available at Typofonderie, in a unique weight in 5 optical sizes. Over the years, the team that worked on the Retiro has included Mathieu Réguer and Lucie Alvado. More than 1100 glyphs, including extended languages support, 4 sets of figures, various set of capitals, lowercases, superiors, ligatures, alternates, swashes, titling variants, stylistic sets, contextual alternates and ornaments.
Retiro is a daring interpretation of Spanish typography. Severe, austere and yet, full of life, Retiro is a vernacular version of Castilian and Andalusian in a typical Didot. Named after a lovely park in Madrid, Retiro started life as a a bespoke typeface designed to give a unique voice to the magazine Madriz. In 2006, the founder of Madriz was looking for a Didot for his new magazine. The Didot is the archetypal typeface used in high-end magazines. Retiro, based on Ambroise is a synthesis of these high contrast styles mixed with an Hispanic mind. Result is then, after 2-3 years of work, a typeface with countless variations – Retiro in 2009 included 470 glyphs – to establish typographic shades adapted to different sections and pages of the Madriz.
In 2014, it was necessary to further revise “the typeface before its launch at Typofonderie.
