Hello, TypeDrawers!

I’m please to announce Garibaldi, a typeface I started 2 years ago as my undergraduate final project. My goal was to explore the role of humanist calligraphy on type design, creating a legible serif typeface without resorting to a purely calligraphic solution. Garibaldi features a 20° axis, medium contrast based on translation and expansion, asymmetric serifs, and terminals related to the broad nib stroke.

Garibaldi Regular was selected for Tipos Latinos 2014. Since then, the family was expanded with more weights and matching italics. It is now available at and selected retailers (MyFonts, Fontspring and YWFT).
