ABOUT







Edy Type [Ricardo Victor Rousselot Schmitt]

Ricardo Victor Rousselot is a calligrapher and type designer born in Argentina in 1936. He was trained in the sixties in Chicago in the studio Ficho&Corley Inc., which was led by a disciple of Frederic Goudy and Oswald Cooper, Carl Corley. After that, he returned to Buenos Aires, and in 1975, he settled permanently in Barcelona, where he teaches at the University of Barcelona.

His typefaces include Carlomagno (1997-2000) and Uncial Romana (1996), released by Neufville.

He sells his fonts nowadays through his foundry, Edy Type. For example, in 2010, Edy Type launched the lively connected handwriting font Despeinada, which, Ricardo says, tries to find the middle between Mistral and Zapfino. Chevronne (2010, not my favorite) is based on mediaeval / gothic forms but tries to be contemporary. Drumbeat (2011) is a calligraphic script face, and Bambola (2011) is a curly signage script.
