Eurotypo is a small foundry established in 2004 by Alberto Di Santo and Olcar Alcaide that focuses on research, design, and the production and education of typography. Originally formed in Santa Severa, Italy, the group has since moved its headquarters to Madrid, Spain and has been joined by designer Carine de Wandeleer. “In Eurotypo we develop new and original typefaces inspired by both the models of ancient writing and the investigation of new forms of expression based on the communication function of typography,” the group says.
The group made its MyFonts debut with Antium, and has followed it up with bestsellers such as script faces Aleka and Juliette. “Our fonts are carefully handcrafted. We concentrate on the design and production of our typefaces and all of the formal and technical aspects of our fonts are controlled in much detail: readability, visibility and expressiveness as well as Opentype features, and kerning accuracy.”
