ABOUT







Isabella Ribeiro Aragao

For her PhD at UFPE (in Recvife, Brazil) and USP (in Sao Paulo, under Priscila Farias), Isabella Ribeiro Aragao researched Funtimod (Fundição de Tipos Modernos, est. 1932), the largest and first industrial scale type manufacturer in Brazil with national reach. Considered an important Brazilian type foundry, it used to import matrices from European countries, especially Germany, to fabricate the modern types. Examples of their typefaces include Memphis Meio Preto (1960s), which is similar to Rudolf Wolf's iconic slab serif typeface, Memphis. At ATypI 2015 in Sao Paulo, Isabella Ribeiro Aragao and Priscila Farias reported on their research into Funtimod.
