Born in 1977 in Concepcion Chile, he studied Graphic Design at Universidad del BioBio State University in Chillan, Chile.

Some time in or just before 2015, he broke his relationship with Latinotype. In 2015, he set up ABC Alphabets by Chileans together with Tania Chacana. His typefaces:

Before Latinotype, Miguel Hernandez created many pixel typefaces. The typefaces made in that period before 2007 include:

  • The pixel font Sligthest.

  • The bitmap display font Kuppa (2003).
  • The church stone engraving simulation typeface Finaita (2002).
  • The Western pixel font Arizona (2003, perfect!).
  • The bitmap handwriting font Wolfgang Bold.
  • The screen font Screenager (2002).
  • The funky bitmap font Groobit.
  • Minority (2002, a very small screen font).

  • The gray pixel typeface Sushi (2004, hiragana, katakana, Latin).
  • The serif font Quetzal (2003).
  • The bitmap family Sugar (2003).
  • The bitmap family Apple (2004, based on Apple's Chicago).
  • At Atomic Media, he released Carbona and Carbona Bold in 2002, as well as 12 bitmap fonts in 2003: Maya, Fundamental, Azteca, Tekilla, Aymara, Minority, Quadratis, Carnoa Plain&Bold, Machina Typewriter, Dotic (blackletter), Mezcal, Circa.
  • In 2004, he joined Ultra Pixel Fonts, where he made the pixel typefaces Orbital, Sugar, Odyssey, Solar, Voltage, Jetson.
  • At Latinotype, he made Picara Sans (2007, an organic sans), Cadena (2007, a rounded sans which won at Tipos Latinos 2008), Love (2007, ultra fat rounded) and Mote (2007, rounded sans display face).
  • Co-designer with Tania Chacana of ABC Normal (2016) which they motivate in this way: Normal is a working horse for the Modern Grotesk Canon, result of study of the models from Theinhardt, Renner, Novarese & Gerstner; avoiding to reveal a personal style.
