Harbor Type

Harbor Type is an independent type foundry based in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. It is run by Henrique Beier, graphic designer by major, type designer by heart. I develop typefaces for retail and provide font production services to other foundries and type designers. The foundry was started in 2014 with the release of Densia Sans. First available on a pay-what-you-want basis, it was well received by the public and inspired me to pursue designing typefaces for a living. Later on came Graviola, Garibaldi, Malva and others. Along the way I learned that fonts are more than just nice letterforms. They stand at the crossroads of design and technology, which is why I also pay special attention to the technical aspects of typography.
