Hi! I am Pedro Arilla,
a type designer & typographer
from Spain based in Reading (UK).

I design typefaces and write texts. I give workshops and lectures, write articles in blogs and magazines, and teach online training. I am a self-taught type designer with five years’ experience and two retail typefaces published, currently attending the MA Typeface Design at University of Reading, United Kingdom. I own a small letterpress studio, host one of the most well-known blogs on typography in the Spanish language, and organise and teach an international type design one-week workshop in Spain.

My non-type-related-background includes eight years’ experience as editorial and branding designer, a dark past as web coder, a few high-school fanzines, travels around the world — with a wedding in Las Vegas included, a dog, an unfinished novel, dozens of poems, and hundreds of books on my shelves.

Freethinker. Pro-feminist. Skeptic. Learner. Reader. Doer.
