That’s funny because “Fuentes” is the Spanish word for “fonts”, and I made typography. Let’s say that’s my fate.
I’m a graphic, editorial and type designer, and a comics letterer. Nowadays I work and live in Madrid.
Comics are one of my main passions, and I always notice the lettering, especially when it’s bad done. And, as could not be otherwise, I ended up as a comic letterer improving the quality of the lettering in as many comics and graphic novels I could. I have also done a lot of custom typography for comic authors like Paco Roca, Juanjo Cuerda, Joseps Homs or Albert Monteys, among others.
Type design and comics lettering.
One of my main concerns about comics lettering is that the comics fonts usually doesn’t look like actual handwritting, and many times that’s really an issue. My fonts and my custom fonts always try to look like actual handwritting. That’s the thing that authors like the Eisner nominees Paco Roca or Alber Monteys looks for in my work.
