Paquita was my first typeface, back in 2006. It was a nice try, kind of a modern roman scratched with a ball pen in five minutes (actually that’s the way I did it). It was a very successful font and now Paquita is all over the world in lots of websites, children’s books and posters.

In 2016, with my new website, I had to decide whether to stop selling a typeface that no longer had the level required or completely redoing the font. Well, the font seems to have something appealing to the people, and also Paquita is my mum’s name so I just couldn’t kill it. I made a pause in the website and started to work on this Paquito.

Fully redrawn, with an extended language support and new OpenType features, Paquito is the best crazy funny font to use in children related stuff with three weights and you can buy it at Fontstore.

Every single glyph has been refurbished to gain consistency across the typeface and better performance, specially on screen (considering that is an odd shaped display font).

The most common pairs of same letters are default ligatures to give some hand lettered flavour. Also, you can activate discretional ligatures to have more strange pairs.

With three weights, Paquita Next suits to any funny text.

Go on Paquito!
Francisco Pérez Molina era hermano de Consuelo, la esposa de Gustavo Pascual Falcó. Debido al oficio de sus padres, que vendían chocolate junto a otras especias, eran conocidos con el sobrenombre de “Chocolateros”. Francisco, era conocido en el pueblo como Paquito el Chocolatero.
En el verano de 1937 Gustavo veraneaba junto a la familia de su mujer en una casita a los pies de la sierra Mariola. Una tarde, Gustavo le enseñó a su cuñado Paquito tres composiciones musicales. Le pidió que eligiera una de entre las tres para que llevara su nombre. Paquito las escuchó con atención y sin dudarlo eligió un pasodoble, alegre y dianero, que rimaba bien con su carácter festero. Este pasodoble, es el que hoy conocemos como “Paquito el Chocolatero”. Gustavo, gran observador, supo captar la personalidad de su cuñado y amigo.
