Casa Forastero is a handmade candles brand founded by Oscar Olivas. For the typography, Andrés Higueros designed a custom-made typeface. AH Forastero is a serif display typeface with a modern and rustic touch that complements the concept and the graphic of the brand. It’s inspired by 1930s and 1940s letters carved into bronze, evoking a serious, elegant, and nostalgic feel. The glyph set has a complete set of uppercase characters, ligatures, and punctuation symbols. AH Forastero is used throughout the brand, from the packaging to the website, and is accompanied by the sans-serif Mabry by Colophon.
