FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE
Emtype is the foundry in Barcelona that was founded in 1997 (in Buenos Aires) by Eduardo Manso. Eduardo was born in Buenos Aires in 1972 and studied graphic design at the Escuela de Artes Visuales Martín A. Malharro and at the Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata, both in Mar del Plata. Art director of the Argentinian graphic design mag "el Huevo". He currently lives in Barcelona. His typefaces include the pixel font family Dixplay (2003, Emtype), the grunge font Eroxion (1997) and Rina Linea and Rina (2001), all at Bitstream, the Scotch roman text family Bohemia (2004), Andromeda ([T-26]), Garadonis, Fluxus, Ovalus (2005, free dot matrix face), Relato (2005, advertised as a muscular serif family), Relato Sans (2005, which won an award at TDC2 2006), Merss (2000, ITC), Argot (2004, winner of an award at TDC2 2004), Flour, and Flour Inline.
Argot was renamed Bohemia (published in 2004 with Linotype), and won an award at the Linotype International Type Design Contest 2003. EMT Lorena won an award at TDC2 2007.
He custom designed Sunday Times Modern (2008) for the Sunday Times.
Still in 2008, he published Geogrotesque, a semimodular geometric display typeface in 7 styles. Geogrotesque won an award at Tipos Latinos 2010. This was followed in 2009 by Geogrotesque Stencil and in 2015 by Geogrotesque Stencil Italic, Geogrotesque Compressed, Geogrotesque Condensed, and Geogrotesque Extra Compressed. In 2016, he added Geogrotesque Slab, in 2018 Geogrotesque Cyrillic, in 2019 Geogrotesque Expanded and in 2020 Geogrotesque Sharp (98 styles, and a variable font).
He created the custom typeface La Grilla.
Periodico (Text, Display) was originally commissioned by the Spanish daily newspaper 'ABC', and was published as a 30-font family with lots of old Spanish ingredients in 2011.
In 2012 the London agency GBH commissioned Emtype to develop a custom typeface for the Puma football teams for use in the Brazil World Cup 2014 as well as in the national competitions.
Ciutadella (2012) was originally commissioned by Mario Eskenazi's studio. It is a versatile geometric sans serif, a simple, clean and direct family. In 2015, Emtype published Ciutadella Rounded and in 2016 Ciutadella Slab and Ciutadella Display.
Typefaces from 2014: Shentox. This squarish nearly monoline typeface family started out from British license plates.
Camber (2015) is a workhorse sans typeface, slightly squarish and on a geometric base.
Eduardo's keen eye strikes again in the variable width grotesque typeface family Akkordeon (2017), whose black weight will give Impact serious competition. Akkordeon Slab< (2017) is equally impressive.
Other typefaces from 2017: Isotonic (a rounded almost monoline sans typeface based on Ciutadella).
Corporate typefaces: Sunday Times, Lorena Serif (newspaper type; certificate of excellence in TDC2 2007).
Typefaces from 2018: Steradian (a geometric sans), Aribau Grotesk (a low contrast geometric sans).
Typefaces from 2019: Approach (a low contrast sans in the style of the earliest grotesques, with slightly angled terminals and plenty of elbow pipes, and a characteristic snub nose "1").
Typefaces from 2020: Approach Mono (a typewriter or programming font family derived from Approach), Majorant (a stocky monoline avant-garde geometric sans).
Typefaces from 2021: Classike (a 13-style high contrast squarish display typeface inspired by art deco), Chiaroscura (Eduardo writes: inspired by an art technique, Chiaroscura is a display typeface that conveys elegance and finesse; it has high contrast, sharp terminals and compact vertical proportions that makes it ideal for headlines), Inklination (a low x-height neo-grotesque with five romans, ten italics, five monospaced versions and 50 fun fists and icons).
