ABOUT







Carlo Buffa

Padova-based graphic designer, teacher of advertising art at the Istituto Statale d'Arte Michele Fanoli in Cittadella Padova, Italy. Organiser of the international calligraphy award Belle Lettere (1997). The resulting publication Belle Lettere won the Fedrigoni Prize for graphic excellence. At ATypI in Rome in 2002, he spoke about two fonts he created: The font Ritratti (1999) was extracted from an Aldina edition and traces the cursive writings drawn and inscribed by Griffo at Venice, so as to imitate the original handwritten text. The font was created for Carlo Mazzacurati and Marco Paolini's three films about the most important modern-day Venetian writers, Mario Rigoni Stern, Andrea Zanzotto, and Luigi Meneghello. The font AnnoMille was used in another Mazzacurati film, La lingua del Santo, and graphically reinterprets the light-hearted and fluid feel of medieval capital letters. These two fonts highlight the roughness and imprecision typical of ancient print and the heterogeneous nature of letters written loosely by hand. Home page. Biography. Logo. Pic.
