Orquesta Sinfónica de Puerto Rico

Posted by Scott

Some awesome typo going on in here, found it over at The Ministry of Type. It’s apparently by Puerto Rican artist Lorenzo Homar, there’s a full bio on him at the bottom of the page. Really very nice hand lettered style, The Ministry briefly discusses the possibilities of creating a digital typeface based on the top font up there, let’s hope that happens at some point. The bottom one, although obviously hand lettered, looks familiar…But I can’t put my finger on it. Any ideas?

Beautiful. Homar is well known in PR, where print making really flourished for a time. Anyone interested should check out “El Cartel en Puerto Rico.” Sadly, it’s hard to get reprints of any of these nowadays.

close but gasoline is more chiseled and angular. and a lot of the characters are way off (check out the lowercase “r” for example)

I’m from PR. Lorenzo Homar is amazing. All of his stuff is breathtaking, specially his type, linocuts & poster works. Nice find..
