ABOUT







Fabrizio Schiavi Design (or: FSD) [Fabrizio Schiavi]

Fabrizio Schiavi was born in Ponte dell'Olio in the Piacenza province in 1971. FSD Fabrizio Schiavi Design in Piacenza was opened in 1998. With Alessio Leonardi, he co-founded Fontology. He also co-launched the experimental graphics magazine Climax in 1994.

Bio at FontFont where he made FF Mode 01, FF 0069, FF GeabOil, FF9600, FF Trade 01, FF Steel Mix, FF Steel Ring, FF Steel Jones.

[T-26] designer of D44 (1994), Lithium (1994, dingbats), Moore895 (1994), Moore899 (1994), Sidewalker (1994), Exit (1988). Many of his typefaces are grungy such as Washed (1994). Some are minimalist, such as Monica Due (1999), Monica (1999), and Eco (2001, developed from a logo in the 70s for Ageco). The latter three fonts are very geometric in nature.

Other fonts: Washed (1994), Parakalein, Aurora Nintendo (1995), Aurora CW (1995), Mode01 (1995), GeabOil (1995), 9600/0069 (1995), Fontology (1995), FSDItems (2001), FSDforMantraVibes (2001), Pragmata (2001, monospace, designed for programs), PragmataFlash (2002, a pixel font), Essential Pragmata Pro (2011, still monospaced), Sys (2002), SysFlash (2002, a pixel font), Sys 2.0 (2012, a condensed sans designed for very small print), Virna (2003, a multiline typeface for Italian MTV, discussed here). The Pragmata and Sys series were optimized for screen usage. In addition, Sys has many ink traps, so it prints well at small sizes, and is more legible than Verdana.

He does some custom typeface design, such as the innovative sans serif family called CPCompany (2000). Other clients include Ferrari and Philip Morris.

In 2007, he produced a stencil and signage font, Siruca (see also here), for the Al Hamra Complex, one of highest skyscrapers in the world, located in Kuwait. Siruca Pictograms (2008) is free. In 2015, he followed that up by a non-stencil rounded sans called Sirucanorm: Designed using golden ratio formulas, it's inspired to DIN and Isonorm typeface.

In 2013, he published Sys Falso, Abitare Sans (30 weights, originally commissioned by the group Rizzoli Corriere della Sera. Abitare is an Italian magazine).

Typefaces from 2014: Nove (a German expressionist typeface inspired by B movie typography: Nove freshly reworks exploitation film era movie poster lettering, refitting the genre to a contemporary audience. The expressive typeface was done for a Nike Italy spoof campaign featuring 1970s cult film director Enzo Castellari and a recently found film reel from his archives, featuring several current Italian athletes and American basketball star Kobe Bryant).

The rounded sans typeface Widiba Bank (2015) was co-designed with Jekyll & Hyde in 2015 for the brand identity of the new bank of Gruppo Monte dei Paschi di Siena.

In 2016, he designed the custom corporate typeface R&M in art nouveau style.

At ATypI in Rome in 2002, he spoke about the need for more fonts.
