ABOUT







Caio Kondo

During his studies in Piracicaba, Goiania, Brazil, Caio Kondo designed the sans typeface Goiania (2014), the blackletter typeface York (2016) and the free didone typeface Chamuyo (2018).

In 2019, Caio Kondo designed the custom typeface Wixx Mono.

In 2020, he co-founded Inari Type with Satsuki Arakaki in Campinas, Brazil. With Satsuki Arakaki, he designed Nikkei Maru (2020) and Mori Gothic (2020), a seven-style geometric sans. Nikkei Maru is a tribute to Japanese immigration done typographically. The project started from a collection of photographs of the ships that brought Japanese immigrants to the American continent, and from our interest in researching the history of immigration, fueled by our own ancestry. In addition to the intercontinental transit, the research also addresses the arrival and establishment of Nikkei---Japanese living abroad and their descendants---on the new continent. The immigration process inspired other aspects of typography, such as newspapers from the Nikkei communities that were a reference for the lower case, and different experiences lived by immigrants which are represented in the dingbats.

In 2021, he published the 3-weight decorative serif family PP Eiko at Pangram Pangram. Characterized by sharp triangular serifs, PP Eiko is inspired by the work of Eiko Ishioka, a multitalented Japanese artist. It seeks to convey the spirit of his work in these typographic explorations. It is an original serif font with high contrast, including the syllable alphabet kana (hiragana and katakana), it can be seemlessly paired with Mincho style kanji fonts.
