ABOUT







Jonathan Pierini

Type and graphic designer from Italy, who he holds a BA in graphic design and visual communication from the ISIA Urbino and an MA in Type and Media from the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in 2008 in Den Haag, The Netherlands. He has worked for private companies, and has been teaching and tutoring in different Universities in Italy. He is currently working at the Free University of Bozen Bolzano, Italy. Since 2011 he has been running the ISIA Urbino Type design Week summer program. More recently, he had a stint with Dalton Maag.

He created the Vasinto Sans family as a student at KABK.

In 2013 Bistro Studio designed a new identity and typeface concept for Mediterranea 16. Implementation done by Jonathan Pierini.

Together with Riccardo Olocco, Jonathan Pierini reinterpreted Bodoni's work in 2014. Their Parmigiano Typographic System, which is named after Parma, the city where Giambattista Bodoni (d. 1813) established his printing house, attempts to revive, interpret and boldly extend Bodoni's work. There is not a single official original Bodoni---Bodoni's Manuale Tipografico contains many slightly different examples---, and so, the first challenge was to create coherent relationships between various optical sizes (Piccolo, Caption, Text, Headline) and weights. Besides the Parmigiano Serif family, Olocco and Pierini also developed the creative extension Parmigiano Sans. There are also Stencil, Typewriter, Egyptian styles, to name a few. The Parmigiano Typographic System was published in 2014 by Typotheque, but was developed a few years before that.

In 2014, Leonardo Sonnoli and Jonathan Pierini developed the bespoke typeface family Mast for the MAST Foundation in Bologna.

His Ovo typeface (2014) is a restyling of the custom font originally designed for the multifunctional center Ginestra, Fabbrica della Conoscenza based in Montevarchi (Arezzo).
