I came across this collection of Puerto Rican posters from 1952-85. Many of the posters have a playful folk art aesthetic with their colorful, illustrative imagery combined with what appears to be hand-drawn type. As a designer, sometimes you find yourself searching for the perfect typeface and nothing seems to fit. Hand rendering type can be a risk work taking when it results in something one-of-a-kind and refreshingly original, if not necessarily perfect.
