ABOUT







Sandra Carrera

Sandra Carrera (b. 1986), originally from Spain and Switzerland, has a Masters in art direction and type design from ECAL, Lausanne, Switzerland, and holds a BA in Visual Communication from HEAD, Geneva. Her degree project was a typeface called Gandarela typeface, a personal interpretation of of Baroque Spanish types.

Sandra interned at Commercial Type during the summer of 2013, where she worked on Marian Text 1554 and Marian Text 1880. Type designer at Production Type since 2014. In 2014, she made the elegant type system Picara with subfamilies for Text (serifed), Text Sans, Display (modern, fashion mag styles), Stripes and Dual (semi-striped). She writes: Pícara is a bookish typeface family, a tool for graphic designers, which takes its roots into the Spanish 18th type design century, while being a free interpretation of a specimen showing the letters of Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros. Its "cut with a knife" shapes and tight curves, give Pícara a digital and contemporary texture as well as a singular identity, while being readable and functional.

At Production Type, she cooperated on Countach in 2014: Countach, the tough compact sans supercharged with brawn & brains. Developed for The Crew, a critically acclaimed auto racing video game, Countach evokes the muscular and mechanical dynamics of fast cars and urban adventure. . Countach was developed by Superscript2, J.-B. Levée, Sandra Carrera and Irina Smirnova.

Marian Text (2014-2016) is a grand collection of ultra thin typefaces designed at Commercial Type by Miguel Reyes, Sandra Carrera, and Paul Barnes. Marian Text 1554 depicts the old style of Garamond & Granjon; John Baskerville's transitional form becomes Marian Text 1757; the modern of Bodoni, with swash capitals and all, becomes Marian Text 1800, and the early Moderns of the Scottish foundries of Alexander Wilson & Son of Glasgow, and William Miller of Edinburgh, become Marian Text 1812. And like the original, a black letter: Marian Text Black, referencing the forms of Hendrik van den Keere.
