NO MOMENTO – Vítor da Silva & Design de Imprensa (Documentary)
In the fifties, before the term “Design” was known in Portugal, Vítor da Silva made his debut in the “Século” drawing room and collaborated with the “Diário de Lisboa”. In the seventies he will bring the graphic modernity of the newspapers designed by himself: “Expresso” and “Tempo”, and for the remodelling of “Diário de Notícias”. A portrait of the printed press, at a time when newspapers were made in the moment.

[28/03/2016]This year me and my colleague and friend Pedro Amado were invited to give a workshop (Desenho Ágil de Tipos de Letra) at the national meeting of design students in the city of Coimbra (Portugal).
As type designers we feel lucky when our fonts are chosen to be used and even proud when they are used well helping to bring to life or enhance a design concept. This year we had the opportunity to see our Lab Sans Pro in an exciting new medium of exposure; the Sci-Fi movie Ex Machina directed by Alex Garland recently released in theaters worldwide.
If you are in Valencia, Spain next June you can’t miss the exhibition “Cada letra cuenta una história” at MuVIM, Museu Valencià de la Il.lustració i de la Modernitat about type design in Spain since 1990. You will find some of Tiponautas typefaces together with masterpieces from great Spanish type designers!

Designed by Tipos das Letras, TDL Ruha Latin is a modern and mechanical serif typeface and it results from the development of the stencil RUHA. Being the first typeface of the family, sets the basic concepts to be developed further, on each version to come. There is an rigid geometrical connection with the Roman du Roi design approach, since the letterforms are imposed by the constraints of the RUHA ruler. Maintaining the same structure with different typographical and stylistic properties, the stencil allowed to explore a modern typeface, with vertical stress, high contrast between the thick and thin strokes and triangular serifs.

The design approach, results from a rigid geometrical connection with the Roman du Roi, since the letterforms are imposed by the constraints of the RUHA ruler. The main typographic proportions are connected with the modern typefaces, like Didot or Bodoni.
