Distefano Slab was developed by Rubén Fontana and published by Tipo. Distefano Piece includes 8 designs and family package options. p > Created from the viewpoint of a multi-purpose typeface household, comprehending the slab-serif and humanist-sans subtypes, the Distéfano typefaces were particularly developed and consequently checked thinking about the needs of editorial products, for both print and digital media.

Includes a detailed program where formal, design, density and slant characteristics are particularly shown for the structure of text and headings in papers, journals and magazines. For that factor, in addition to the more traditional weights, others, varying from Light to Black were added.

The identity and systemic requirements of this font family does not fall short on variety of specific solutions, style and quirks for each version, specifically visible in the contrast of the italics to the roman styles.

The initial illustrations of Distéfano go back to 1983; embodied in pencil on paper, supplied just the alphabetical characters and punctuation indications for Spanish, and the Sans Serif household. By digitalizing them, their possibilities of usage were expanded, the set of characters of each typeface were considerably finished considering the present requirements for the majority of the latin and germanic languages, and the slab-serif household was developed.

This type household bears the name of the most notable argentinian designer, and it is a tribute to his work, that affected the youth of the 50's decade of the 20th century, and particularly to him, whom I have constantly acknowledged as a good friend, and an instructor.
