Austral Sans is based in the design of Austral Slab. This font's structure was first drawn with pencil, and then traced with markers to make the different weights. After that, it was scanned and drawn roughly in the first vector version. Then it was finally vectorized in the font software with all the details & textures. Finally, kerning and Open-Type programming were done.
*The irregular strokes of this font are inspired by the silhouettes of mountains, treelines, old broken wood, among others.
The textures this font offers are inspired by rust, water and humidity drip marks, dirt, maps, road lines, and many other objects and textures I found from July 2015 to April 2016, living in San Juan, Argentina, and traveling to Mendoza, Córdoba and Monte Hermoso (Buenos Aires).
Austral Sans was sketched and designed from August 2016 to October 2016, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It was finally released the 3rd of October, 2016.
