Rui Abreu

He is one of those type designers who taught himself the craft by making experimental geometric fonts, then traveled a steep learning curve by continually challenging himself.

Within years he was designing highly original, beautifully drawn typefaces, and winning awards. Several of his most striking faces were published by Fountain in Sweden.

He still releases work with them, but some years ago launched his own one-man label, operating from Lisbon, Portugal.

Among his side projects is a series of splendid videos he designed and directed to accompany his typeface releases. Meet the multi-talented Rui Abreu.
