Distefano Sans was designed by Rubén Fontana and published by Tipo. Distefano Sans contains 8 styles and family package options.  

Designed from the perspective of a multi-purpose font family, comprehending the slab-serif and humanist-sans subtypes, the Distéfano typefaces were specifically developed and subsequently tested considering the needs of editorial products, for both print and digital media.  

 Includes a comprehensive program where formal, style, thickness and slant attributes are especially indicated for the composition of text and headings in newspapers, journals and magazines. For that reason, in addition to the more traditional weights, others, ranging from Light to Black were added.

The identity and systemic criteria of this font family doesn't fall short on diversity of specific solutions, flair and quirks for each variant, especially noticeable in the contrast of the italics to the roman styles.

The original drawings of Distéfano date back to 1983; embodied in pencil on paper, provided only the alphabetical characters and punctuation signs for Spanish, and the Sans Serif family. By digitalizing them, their possibilities of use were widened, the set of characters of each typeface were considerably completed considering the current requirements for the majority of the latin and germanic languages, and the slab-serif family was developed.

This type family bears the name of the most notable argentinian designer, and it is a homage to his work, that influenced the youth of the 50's decade of the 20th century, and especially to him, whom I have always recognized as a friend, and a teacher.
