The Faces of Typography – Prints by Tiago Pinto

Tiago Pinto’s brilliant Typeface Project is the result of time away from his advertising job and an obsession with font, “In the summer of 2011, during a month off between leaving my agency in Lisbon and coming to Amsterdam I decided to start playing with typography and forms.” Turning Futura, Times New Roman, Courier and other familiar types into bold portraits, he comments “For me every Font has a face. So Bodoni is the Italian with a moustache, Futura is the stylish and good looking mid-life man, Times New Roman… well you got the point…” The collection is now available online as prints and other bits n’ pieces, graphic design at its best.
