FLORES first appeared in 2001, inspired by this florist’s sign in Valencia, Spain. I started with the 6 given letters and made up the others. With a happy 70s deco feel, the 7-petalled flowers are negative spaces which appear as the background or paper color. Now, thanks to a discussion on Typophile, I have seen more original letters, as in “Sachet Discret” and “Fleurdon” (below) and added them to the font. I was also happy to see that Flores (with my original C and H) appeared in this CBS News segment about typography.
Flores font contains 188 defined characters and 124 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (83), Latin-1 Supplement (75), Latin Extended-A (9), Spacing Modifier Letters (3), General Punctuation (13), Currency Symbols (1), Mathematical Operators (1), Private Use Area (2).
