Flash has two capital O alternatives, one with an accentuated 45° angle. It is part of the Grafía Latina collection, a concept developed by Catalan graphic designer Enric Crous-Vidal to describe the spirit of a typeface in keeping with Latin cultures. It exposes the need to create a new system of typographic structures and graphics, in typographic characters and decorative arabesques, in accordance with Latin imagination and creativity, as opposed to the rigidity of Germanic typography, with cubic forms, drawn with ruler and compass.
Enric Crous Vidal (1908-1987) was born in Lleida (Spain). Soon he develops broad cultural interests that make him the promoter of the magazine Art. He moved to Paris, where he worked in Draeger Frères. Then held the position of Artistic Director of the Fonderie Typographique Française. He drives a new graphic design called ‘Graphie Latine’.
