ABOUT







RM WD [Antonio Vignali]

Graphic designer designer, b. 1959, Parma, Italy. He studied at the Art Institute in Parma. After graduation in 1983 from the Urbino ISIA Academy, Antonio spent 20 years working as Senior Art Director and Creative Director for various international advertizing agencies in Milan (Pirella Lowe, Armando Testa, Young & Rubicam).

In 2016, he designed the calligraphic typeface Gerolinda. This OpenType-feature-laden typeface family, at 1900 glyphs per weight for six weights, leaves all other calligraphic typefaces from the past decade in the dust. It is as if the Italian penmen from the renaissance period are being reborn through Antonio's hand. In fact, he intended something very specific---the recreation of an Italian gentlewoman's hand (his own words).

In 2018, he designed Italiano Doc (which was inspired by the Italian Futurismo artists in the early 1900s), Ziletti Pop (a layerable pre-psychedelic font influenced by Girolamo Ziletti (1552-1583) in Venice) and Eletric Lady (a light copperplate calliraphic script).

In 2020, he published Parmesan Revolution (a didone with mirrored letters, perhaps in the hope of emulating Cyrillic), Venice Revolution, Jannson Map (a wonderful 18th century map font about which Antonio writes: This font is inspired by Johannes Janssonius, well known as Jan Janszoon or Jan Janssonius (b. Arnhem, 1588, d. Amsterdam, 1664), a Dutch cartographer, publisher and engraver who was married to Hondius's daughter. He authored many masterpieces of cartography just like Willem Blaeu and Hondius).
