gotas Typeface Design

Epiphyllum oxypetalum or Queen of the night is a species of cactus and one of the most cultivated species in the genus. It can be found from Mexico to Venezuela. Queen of the night blooms only at night and dies before dawn. It is the flower that cannot be bought.


In the gotas typeface I tried to reflect the feeling of beauty and purity. As a visual concept I chose the queen of the night flower. I used its anatomical feature and combined the thick part and the thin part of it and create a line which is going from thick to thin and also I combined it with a drop. The line which has the high contrast in its own and the drop are the main characteristic features of gotas. While I was designing the gotas I decided to make it a geometrical typeface. That is why gotas’ anatomy based on Futura.


gotas means drop in Spanish.
