Cristóbal Henestrosa (Estudio CH, Tlalpan, Mexico) is the Mexican designer (b. 1979, Mexico City) who co-founded Círculo de Tipógrafos in Mexico. He is professor at four universities in Mexico and an award-winning type designer [read on for details]. Henestrosa has a bachelor's degree in graphic communications from the National School of Plastic Arts (ENAP) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where his student project in 2003 was Espinosa, and a Master's degree in typographic design from the Center for Gestalt Studies, Veracruz, August 2009, where his thesis was entitled Fondo. La familia del Fondo de Cultura Económica. He is professor of typography and type design at UNAM. He has also taught at the National Fine Arts Institute's School of Design. In 2012, Cristobal Henestrosa, Laura Meseguer and José Scaglione coauthored Como Crear Tipografias (Brizzolis S.A., Madrid, Spain). He lives in Heroes de Padierna, Mexico.

Designer of Espinosa, mentioned here.

Author of Espinosa. Rescate de una tipografía novohispana (México, Designio, 2005), a book about Antonio de Espinosa, a 16th century Mexican typographer, who in all likelihood cut the Espinosa type.

The commissioned text family Fondo (2007) won an award in the TDC2 2008 competition and at Tipos Latinos 2008 (for extensive type family).

Creator of the angry hand-printed typeface Prejidenjia (2008, with Luis Novoa).

Speaker at ATypI 2009 in Mexico City, where he introduced the work of 16th century printer Antonio de Espinosa to the world. Espinosa Nova (2009) won an award at TDC2 2010 and a grand prize at Tipos Latinos 2010.

Guaca Rock (2009) is a stone chisel typeface based on the logotype of the rock band Botellita de Jerez.

Gandhi (jointly designed with Raul Plancarte) won an award at Tipos Latinos 2012.

Soberana Sans (Raúl Plancarte and Cristóbal Henestrosa), made for the Mexican Government in 2012-2013, won an award at Tipos Latinos 2014.

Ayotzinapa (2015, by Raul Plancarte and Cristobal Henestrosa) won an award at Tipos Latinos 2016.

His titling typeface Royal Charter won an award at Tipos Latinos 2018. This is a digital revival by Cristobal Henestrosa based on an experimental typeface named Charter, designed yet never fully finished by William Addison Dwiggins. It is an upright italic, unconnected script typeface, whose main features are a pronounced contrast, condensed forms and exaggerated ascenders. While Dwiggins worked on this project from 1937 to 1955, he only completed the lowercase and a few other characters. However, it was used to set a specimen in 1942 and a short novel in 1946. The sources that Cristobal used for Royal Charter (and later, Mon Nicolette) were the original sketches by WAD as well as printing trails kept at the Boston Public Library, and a copy of the 1946 edition of The Song-Story of Aucassin and Nicolette. This gorgeous typeface can be used successfully in headlines, subheads and short passages of text from 12 points onwards. It was published in 2020 as Mon Nicolette at Sudtipos, where the help of Oscar Yanez was acknowledged.
