ABOUT







Iñigo López Vázquez

Iñigo López Vázquez is a graphic designer from Puebla, Mexico. As part of his final project at the Rhode Island School of Design, he created Ivrea (2015), which is simultaneously a typeface and a dedicated text editor. It was inspired by Olivetti typewriters---Ivrea is named after the town where Olivetti typewriters were made. During a summer course called Type@Paris (2015), he designed Mazarine under the guidance of Jean François Porchez. It was intended for use in newspapers, with a large x-height and the sturdyness of classics like Times or Georgia: The main purpose of the typeface was to create a readable roman with a crisp texture. In order to do that, Mazarine draws its bowl terminals & tails from xixth century Scotch typefaces. The building blocks of the typeface are straight lines but also perfect circles which can be seen on the way the bowls are constructed. This rationalization of the Renaissance letterforms makes the shapes feel a lot more fresh. Labanotation (2015) is a dingbat font created after the dancing notation invented by Rudolph Laban to record movement in dance.
