I grew up in Portugal where I began my studies in graphic design (ESEIG, Vila do Conde). My passion for hand lettering led me to Paris to attend Claude Mediavilla's latin calligraphy classes. This class changed my life and I moved to Paris to live and work.

In 2010 the MediaType Foundry was founded by Claude Mediavilla, me and Joel Vilas Boas. Our creations find inspiration beyond the history of typography but to large extent in the extensive history of the Latin script, and also based on the Claude Mediavilla's paleogeographic and calligraphic knowledge.

In 2010 I attended the post graduate course Typography and Language at ESAD -Amiens, supervised by Sébastien Morlighem that allowed to immerse myself in typographical research and practice. This allowed me to open my field of investigation in non-Latin scripts. During the course I developed the typeface Asmaa, that includes both Latin and Arabic.

In April 2012 I joined the team of Jean François Porchez (Typofonderie et Zecraft) in which I participated in the development of various typefaces.

Since the spring of 2013 I established myself as a freelancer type designer and calligrapher and I am available for hire. Read Less
