Ginto

The Ginto system consists of the two sister-families Ginto Normal and Ginto Nord.

Ginto is a geometric-humanist typeface – fundamental to itʼs identity is the tension between circles and rectangles. The design developed from a period of research, surveying of a variety of sans-serif typefaces from across the 20th century and studying a shift from the Modernist ‘pure’ geometry into the slightly more baroque and exuberant style of typefaces cut during the photo setting period.

These two styles are remixed into a new vocabulary; shapes transition from the circular bowls into the straight strokes, with a contrast that gives a dynamism and personality while ensuring a more balanced tone, ultimately benefiting the typeface at smaller sizes.

Ginto Normal features compact shapes and a rational set of weights, ranging from Thin to Black. These allow Ginto Normal to perform well across many sizes and environments, and aesthetically result in a more technical, poised character. Particularly distinctive letters, like the ‘a’, ‘t’, ‘M’ and ampersand can be easily swapped for an alternative form via Opentype features, for those seeking a more behaved personality.

Ginto Nord, on the other hand, takes the tone and tenor of Ginto Normal and turns the volume up to 11 – echoing the masterful works of Roger Excoffon, Ed Benguiat and Joseph Churchward. Nord is a graphic remix of Normalʼs structure, featuring a large x-height and more generous character width. It goes beyond Normal’s functional weights and adds two more to the spectrum: stretching from fine Hairlines to monolithic Ultra Bold forms.

Both sister families feature the standard Dinamo character set, over 700 glyphs supporting the majority of Latin-based scripts. The typeface also features a variety of symbols and arrows, including a set of special brackets and quote marks for our colleagues in East Asia.

Ginto also has a connection and interest in the cutting edge of digital type design and engineering. Both families will soon be catapulted into the future by the newly developed Variable Font technology. Its curves will be seamlessly available in their full range of weights and styles: from the thinnest thin to the boldest black. Keep your eyes out for the final Ginto Variable Fonts in fall 2018.

And yet another souvenir is in the pipeline: a very special collaboration with our friends from Hard Working Good Looking: Clara Balaguer, Kristian Henson, Dante Karlos and Czar Kristoff. They’ve been working on a new edition of Dinamo Hardware very close to our heart: a series of ex libris stamps and customisable metal dry seals – imagine Ginto going full Jejemon on wild Bauhausean shapes. Locally produced in Manila and ready to be dispatched soon.
