About Homenaje

Creator: Multiple Designers

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Homenaje is inspired by the bronze cemetery art found in the Recoleta and Chacaritas districts of Buenos Aires, Argentina. A grotesque and narrow type, it provides economy in text setting without losing its strong, straight and steady features. The name “Homenaje” means tribute in Spanish, a modest way to honor the patient and accurate work of the lettering artists whose bronze letters honor a lifetime.

Updated in September 2012 with repositioned quote marks.

Designed by Constanza Artigas Preller and Agustina Mingote.
