Hey! I am Pedro Arilla,
a type designer & typographer from Spain working at Fontsmith and living in London (UK).

I design typefaces, write texts, teach workshops, give lectures — and code for fun. I passed with Distinction the MA Typeface Design at University of Reading, host one of the most well-known publications on typography in the Spanish language (Don Serifa), organise and teach an international one-week type design workshop (Glíglifo), and own a small letterpress studio.

My non-type-related-background includes experience as an editorial and branding Art Director, a dark past as a programmer, a darker past (in the good way) as an editor of a metal music webzine, a few high-school fanzines, travels around the world with a wedding in Las Vegas included, a dog called Bunbury, an unfinished novel, dozens of poems, and hundreds of books on my shelves.

㋡ 2010—, Pedro Arilla.
