Ricardo Rodrigues dos Santos (or briefly, Ricardo Santos, b. 1976 in Lisbon) is a Portuguese type designer. He ran VanArchiv (est. 2000) from Loures, Portugal. He changed the name to Ricardo Santos and sells his work through MyFonts.

Ricardo's early masterpiece is Atlantica (2005), a 28-weight transitional family. His typefaces Insectos Project (1997, geometric sans) Base Geometric Sans Serif (1998, geometric sans) Focus (1999, geometric sans) and Zeit Geist (2000, decorative) are discussed by a type forum. He made the sans families Boom (1997, decorative), Van (1998-2001, geometric sans) Urbis (2001, geometric sans) Baseniv (2001), geometric sans) RS1 (1998, decorative), Mitron (2001, decorative) Van Condensed (1998-2004, geometric sans) Van Dingbats (2004, travel dingbats), Focus and Focus Dingbats (2006, sans), and Lisboa (2000-2005, a humanist sans, with dingbats based on the symbology of Lisbon city, published with Fountain, and later at Vanarchiv as Lisboa Swash (2015), Lisboa (2017), Lisboa Sans (2017), Lisboa Tamil (2018). Lisboa Sans Tamil (2019), and Lisboa Hebrew (2018)).

At Tiponautas: Lab Sans Pro (LuisAlonso+RicardoSantos--LabSlabPro-2011b.png">2011, by Luis Alonso and Ricardo Santos) is a geometric sans-serif typeface with a technological and minimalist look and is suitable for use in large sizes.

Tramuntana 1 Pro (2012) was inspired by the late Renaissance and Manneiist spirit during 2009 for his Masters in Advanced Typography (Eina-Barcelona). This project was also inspired by Robert Granjon, Garamond and Sabon typefaces. The name tramuntana (Tramontane) is the Catalonian word for the cold wind that comes from the Pyrenees mountains and goes as far as the Balearic Islands. It was designed for editorial proposes (books and magazines). Tramuntana Dingbats (2012) is a set of artistic arrows.

Typefaces at Tipos da Letras: TDL Ruha Hairline and Latin (2014, with Abrígio Morgada and Rúben Dias: a modern slab and wedge serif pair). See also TDL Ruha Crown (2017).

In 2014, Ricardo Santos designed the geometric humanist sans typeface family Grafia Sans.

Typefaces from 2015, at Tiponautas: Xaloc (a Latin text typeface with flaring and stroke modulation, divided over subfamilies called Caption, Text, Subhead and Display). At Vanarchiv, still in 2015, he published the 20-style calligraphic text families Escritura and Escritura Display. In Escritura, Santos worked in elements of chancery and renaissance writing, Its angular open letters make this typeface useful for texts. It was extended in 2017 to Escritura Hebrew.

Typefaces from 2016: Aircrew (published at Tiponautas), which is a neutral, humanist sans-serif family optimized for wayfinding and signage applications in display sizes. Aircrew features large x-height, vertical terminals, low contrast, and short ascenders and descenders.

Typefaces from 2017: Aquino (by Rui Abreu and Ricardo Santos; a display calligraphic stencil typeface inspired by a liturgic book made by Portuguese friar Tomas Aquino in 1735), Gazeta (text and editorial use).

Typefaces from 2019: Gazeta Slab, Gazeta Stencil Ds, Lisboa Sans Hebrew, Lishbona Naskh (an Arabic typeface based on Lisboa Sans).

Typefaces from 2020: Linka (2020: a rounded organic sans that can be morphed into a linked cursive script, complete with initial, medial and final forms), Linka Stencil (2020), Nouveau LX Expanded, Nouveau LX Stencil, Nouveau LX (based on Hermann Hoffmann's Herold (1913, Berthold), but with a different capital R).
