ABOUT







José Manuel Urós

Aka Josema Uros. Self-taught programmer in Barcelona, b. 1956, who set up the type foundry Type-O-Tones in 1992. He is also involved in Neue in Barcelona. Since 1993 he has been teaching at Eina, Elisava, ESDI and IDEP. His typefaces:

  • Arboria (2013). An art deco or architectural sans family published by Type O Tones. Its skeleton was used in the art deco sans stunner, Arbotek (2013).
  • Designer at type-o-tones in Barcelona of Ebu Script (2007). This is a techno script created together with Joan Barjau.
  • Chico (2009). Chico was by designed by Javier Mariscal and Josema Uros specifically for the final roll of credits in the animated film Chico y Rita. It was commercially released in 220 by Type-O-Tones as Chico.
  • Hannover Modern (1996, Type o Tones). Part of a series of fonts used at the Estudio (Javier) Mariscal in Barcelona.
  • Joost (1995-2010). Also done at Type o Tones, this is a monoline geometric / organic family with an odd Futura Black style piano key Stencil thrown in. He writes that the inspiration came from the Bauhaus Dessau im Gewerbemuseum Basel exhibition poster, designed in 1929 by Franz Ehrlich after a sketch by Joost Schmidt, and hence the name Joost.
  • Memimas (2007). A connected upright script, done with Joan Barjau at Type o Tones.
  • Matricia (2007). A dot matrix typeface done at TypeOTones done with Pera Ribalta.
  • Mundo Demibold (1997, Type o Tones). This comic book typeface is inspired by a series of drawings used in the Señor Mundo comic strip of the 1990s. It is in the style of Javier Mariscal.
  • Vulcano (2007, TypeOTones). A typeface developed together with Tori Alimbau and Luis Mendo.
  • At KABK in Den Haag, where he did graduate work in type design, he created Rumba as a final project (2004).
  • DINosaur (2016, Type-o-Tones). A rounded sans related to the DIN norm.
  • Skope (2019, Type-o-Tones). Skope is an experiment in horizontal stress and the extreme lettering style of comic masters such as Josep Coll or Manuel Urda from his cartoons in the pages of the classic TBO (Barcelona, 1917-1998). Some of the features of Skope are borrowed from the masthead of the magazine Triunfo (Valencia, Spain, 1946-1982), and remind this reviewer of the work of Lucian Bernhard in the 1910s.
  • Rothwood (2020). A slab serif family.
