ABOUT







Hugo Cavalheiro d'Alte

Born in Porto, Portugal, in 1975. From 1994 until 1999 he studied graphic design at the Escola Superior de Artes e Design. In 2000 he became a postgraduate student at the KABK where he wrote a Masters thesis entitled "Type&Media". He joined Underware in the same year. At ATypI 2005 in Helsinki, he spoke on On the edge of legibility, which in fact is a talk about blackletter. Affiliated since 2002 with Underware. He lives in Finland.

His typefaces:

  • For Thirstype, he made Kaas (2005), a blackletter typeface for the 21st century, with Latin, Cyrillic, and Hebrew alphabets.
  • Still in 2009, he created a transitional type, Rolland (+Rolland Text, Rolland Small, Rolland Text Italic), about which he writes: Rolland is a digital interpretation of some of the printing types used at the "Typografia Rollandiana" in Lisbon at the end of the XVIII century. The printing and publishing house was established by Francisco Rolland after he moved to Lisbon (from France) in the second half of the XVIII century becoming one of the most successful publishers of his time.
  • Kalevala (2009): a custom sans type family for Finnish jewelry brand Kalevala Koru. The starting point for this project was a book printed and published by Francisco Rolland in 1797: "Escolha das Melhores Novellas e Contos Moraes; Escritos em Francez por MM, d'Arnaud, Marmontel, Madama de Gomez, e outros".
  • In 2009-2010, he made a DIN-like corporate font for Centro Portugues de Design, CPD Sans. This was accompanied by the CPDSerif family, which evolved from Rolland.
  • In 2009, he created the squarish unicase typeface Flexibility: Custom typeface commissioned by the portuguese design studio R2 for the identity of an exhibition that took place in Torino (Italy) in 2008 (World Design Capital 2008).
  • Kaas (2005, Incubator) is a modern geometric/constructed blackletter with a historically-accurate set of titling capitals, a large collection of accents, and Cyrillic and Hebrew alphabets.
  • Arabia (2015) is a custom typeface for Arabia Finland (for the identity renewal work by Ilkka Kärkkäinen).
