Chico · Type-Ø-Tones

Chico was designed specifically for the final roll of credits in the animated film Chico y Rita.

The goal was to design a typeface with a good readability but that conveyed a strong script character and, in some way, tuned to the style of line used throughout the film.


Using a modular sans-serif as a template, Javier Mariscal re-interpreted the forms freely, while maintaining gridlike proportions.
