HermanoMayor is the grandfather of HermanoAlto, resulted from various exercises with block elements, looking for a very compact design that offers a good visibility in headlines. The starting point was a bitmap font to keep the layout in a strict grid, the only “human touch” being the rounded corners and the inevitable slants of letters.
The generous x-height dimension gives this font headline features, used even in lowercases, making it a versatile font in any circumstance, without losing power. With a college personality – a look similar to fonts used in sport signage – HermanoMayor is an intensive and active font despite its simple and somehow heavy construction.
Just like in the case of t-shirts, the font works well for isolated letters and in elaborated contexts, being easy to follow.
