10 years of Type
A collection of works I have done in these 10 years of type

That is it, my friends, times flies. I started my journey in the type world, taking a lettering workshop with a college friend Dado Queiroz, on May 1st and 2nd of 2010. That class made me fall in love with the world of letters and also made me thirsty to learn more and produce more. I keep learning about calligraphy and lettering, and I'm sure there will always be a lot to learn. So I hope I can come back here with a collection of 20, 30, 40 and even 50 years of career.
I can't list exactly how many calligraphy, lettering, or typography projects I have made since then, but I have carefully separated some of the most important in my ten years. Hope you like it :)
The 'official' first one: This is the lettering piece I create in the workshop I took on May 2010. Dado Queiroz's work had a lot of 3D effects and since he was my teacher and one of the artists that inspired me, most of my work in the early years followed this line as you can see below.
As I was learning about typography, I started to understand the importance of calligraphy and began to study this art. Inevitably my work started to have a strong influence of calligraphy since then.
The first commissioned lettering work, straight from Switzerland.
The first typeface, Bispo. Launched on February 2012 as a free font.
