¡Hola! I’m Pedro Arilla, a designer from Spain, working as Creative Director at Fontsmith and living in London (UK).

I design typefaces, write about type, teach workshops and give lectures about it — and code for fun. I hold an MA Typeface Design from the University of Reading (graduating with distinction), host one of the main publications on typography in the Spanish language (Don Serifa), organise and teach a one-week type design workshop (Glíglifo), and read in the meantime.

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. → Email me or follow me on TW & IG.
