ABOUT







Piero De Macchi

Italian type designer born in Turin in 1937. Designer at Nebiolo from 1956-1959. Freelancer and writer since 1971 at his own De Macchi graphic design studio. Most of his typefaces were commissioned by corporations. In 1992 he set up the calligraphic association Dal Segno alla Scrittura. His typefaces:

  • At ATypI in Rome in 2002, he spoke about Novarese, and about his new font family, Nomina, developed for the Italian telephone directories (SEAT). Commissioned in 1999, it was first produced in 2001. It replaced Mandel's Galfra which had been in use since 1977.
  • Iveco (1985): commissioned by the trucking company.
  • Pancarrè (2008). A sans typeface family under development (as of 2013).
  • Graphicus (2003). Done for the Graphicus magazine, Alberto Greco Publishing House of Milan. There are sans and serif versions.
  • The Renaissance chancery italic type Paloma (1992).
  • An experimental Bodoni family (1989).
  • Pitto (1997).
  • The neoclassic family Alexandra (1991-1992).
  • Norberto (2009). Done for an exhibition dedicated to Norberto Bobbio in 2009. A humanist curvy sans.
  • Fiat Advert (2007). A grotesk commissioned by Fiat.
  • The Carolingian script typeface Pennino (1996).
  • WDC2 (2005). Commissioned by Badriotto Palladino Agency for the Torino World Design capital communication briefs.
  • Exemplar (2005). This ten-style text family is the last unfinished alphabet of Aldo Novarese, completed by DeMacchi on request of the Novarese family.
  • A destructivist humanist face, Tremolino (since 1996).

De Macchi's company, De Macchi Progetti Grafici, is located in Torino.
