In 2012, the Dalton Maag Brazil team designed the font for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games The 5448-character connected script font Rio2016 was developed by Dalton Maag Brazil, and involved a team that includes Fabio Haag, Fernando Caro and Gustavo Soares. Beth Lula is the Branding Director of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee. Passages of the press release: Each letter expresses a characteristic of Rio 2016 Games, its people and city. The letters are written with a single continuous linework, with a fast and fluid movement, suggesting the movements of the athletes in action. The variety of curves in the letters has a unique informality, inspired by the joyfulness of the Brazilian people. Fabio Haag, Creative Director at Dalton Maag: As a Brazilian typophile, designing the Rio 2016 font was a dream job. This is a milestone for the design scene in Brazil---it's a great example of how type designers can collaborate with graphic designers, sharing their expertise to strengthen an identity.

François Chastanet

François Chastanet (b. 1975, Bordeaux) is an architect and a graphic designer in Toulouse, France. He specializes in signage systems for transportation networks. Graduate of the École d'Architecture et de Paysage de Bordeaux, he pursued research in 2001 at the Atelier National de Recherche Typographique in Nancy, and completed a DEA in architectural&urban history at the École d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville in 2002. He currently teaches graphic design and typography at the École Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Toulouse. At ATypI 2006 in Lisbon, he spoke on Pixaçao letterforms, the shantytown graffiti letterforms found in the 1990s in Sao Paulo. In 2009, he and Alejandro Lo Celso cooperated with two students, Laure Afchain and Géraud Soulhiol, on an identity type for the city of Toulouse called Garonne. At ATypI 2009 in Mexico City, he and Catherine Dixon spoke on Cholo writing: The term cholo derives from an Aztec word xolotl meaning dog that was later turned on its head and used as a symbol of pride by the Mexican-American community in the context of the ethnic power movements of the 1960s from wich emerged the idea of La Raza or Chicano nationalism. Cholo writing originally constitues the vernacular handstyle created by the Latino gangs in Los Angeles as far back as the 1940s: it is probably the oldest form of the graffiti of names in the 20th century, with its own aesthetic, evident long before the explosion in the early 1970s in New York. Cholo writing can be seen as a cousin of the baroque gothic calligraphies typical of Mexico, as a genuine expression of a border culture between Mexico and the United States. This survey explores the genesis of these specific letterforms that paradoxically gave a visual identity to the LA infinite suburbia. For the first time ever a historical series of photographs from the early 1970s in LA is presented together with a contemporary collection, which gives a unique insight in the history of Cholo writing from an aesthetic point of view. See Placas in Los Angeles, the first suburban blackletters?, Baseline, vol. 55, 2008. In 2003-2004, he created Pontam Black: Pontam Black is a typographic project based on some letterforms observed on sewer plates destined for wordwide sidewalks, from Paris to Los Angeles, produced in Pont-a-Mousson, France. This idea was copied by Jack Usine in 2007 in his Trottoir typeface. Interview by Le Typographe.

Gil at McGill: Reconciling counter-culture with copyright

Gilberto Gil, Brazilian musician and minister of culture, spoke at McGill University in February 2008 on new models needed to deal with copyright. Citing from the article: Brazil has shown some of the boldest counter-cultural initiatives when it comes to copyright. A few years ago, the Brazilian government warned American pharmaceutical companies that if they refused to lower their prices on life-saving AIDS drugs for the country's poor, they would simply break the patents and offer their own generic versions. When Microsoft offered to install Windows computers in Brazil's public schools, the country declined in favour of cheap open-source alternatives. A government official then compared Microsoft to a "drug dealer" - the first hit is free, then you get hooked. [Google] [More]  ⦿

The variety of curves in the letters has a unique informality, inspired by the joyfulness of the Brazilian people.

Hindu Arabic Numeric Medieval Ideograms

From Sao Paulo, Roberto Lyra's explanation on the origins of Arabic numerals: "Each Arabic number we use today is itself an ideogram created by Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (c.778 - c.850). Al-Khwarizmi was born in central Asia in what is know as Uzbekistan, and moved to Baghdad were he worked as a mathematician during the first golden age of Islamic science, at the "House of Wisdom". Using the abacus notations he developed the manuscript decimal system. By the end of the 12th century (Middle Ages) the academic word was divided between the algorists, followers of al-Khwarizmi, and the abacists, who used the abacus as a means of dealing with the unwieldy Roman notation. The oldest dated European manuscript containing Arabic numbers is the Codex Vigilanus written in Spain in 976. In 1202 Leonardo of Pisa (also know as Leonard Fibonacci) published his Liber Abaci, a book of arithmetic and algebraic information. The earliest French manuscript using the new number system was written in 1275. During the 14th century Arabic numerals became widely used by merchants in Italy." [Google] [More]  ⦿

Lambe-lambe

Lambe-lambe (translated: 'lick-lick') is a vernacular printing tradition once popular for promoting theatre and spectacles in Brazil. Lick lick alludes to how the posters are affixed to walls. Poster hangers use large brushes to paint glue on the front of the poster. The glue penetrates the thin paper and sticks the poster to the walls. Long in decline, the city of Sáo Paulo still boasts a working lambe-lambe printshop, Grafica Fidalga, where one can find a rich history of hand-generated letterforms carved as wooden blocks used to print vibrant poster series. The lambe-lambe tradition is reviewed at ATypI 2009 in Mexico City by Catherine Dixon and Henrique Nardi. Christy Wickoff's Lambe-Lambe pages with pictures.

Rio 2016
[Beth Lula]

The font for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games was published just before the 2012 London Games. The 5448-character connected script font Rio2016 was developed by Dalton Maag Brazil, and involved a team that includes Fabio Haag, Fernando Caro and Gustavo Soares. Beth Lula is the Branding Director of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee.

Passages of the press release: Each letter expresses a characteristic of Rio 2016 Games, its people and city. The letters are written with a single continuous linework, with a fast and fluid movement, suggesting the movements of the athletes in action. The variety of curves in the letters has a unique informality, inspired by the joyfulness of the Brazilian people.

Fabio Haag, Creative Director at Dalton Maag: As a Brazilian typophile, designing the Rio 2016 font was a dream job. This is a milestone for the design scene in Brazil---it's a great example of how type designers can collaborate with graphic designers, sharing their expertise to strengthen an identity.

Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich

Brazilian graphic and type designer. Bembo's Zoo is Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich's children's book with all drawings integrated with glyphs from Bembo. He also published Men of Letters and People of Substance (David R. Godine, 2007). The promotional blurb states: de Vicq takes the designs of type and ornaments (known affectionately in the trade as "dingbats") and common linecuts to form the faces of his literary heroes. In the second part he combines type ornaments and icons to suggest a face with singular attributes: pride, fear, fanaticism, and surprise. But these are not drawings; they are images arranged from the combination of specific and discrete graphic forms. They are created on a computer and not in a composing stick. Designer at Muccatypo of Bastardo, Wet and Genealogy.

He wrote Words at Play (with Matteo Bologna, Adobe, 2004), about which he says: This book showcases type portraits of well-known writers in a playful homage to the power of words and the beauty of typography. In 2010, he designed a PDF brochure for TDC in New York entitled How To Make Love To Your Type [and the typophiles as a group are a cranky bunch without a sense of humor].
