About

I am Pedro Arilla, a type designer & typographer from Spain currently working in London for Fontsmith.

I design typefaces and write texts. I give workshops and lectures, write articles in blogs and magazines, and teach online training. In 2010 I got into type design and in 2016 I attended 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 (Don Serifa), and organise and teach an international type design one-week workshop in Spain (Glíglifo).

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 called Bunbury, an unfinished novel, dozens of poems, and hundreds of books on my shelves.
