As a type designer, I am specialized in creating unique solutions for brands and organizations. I have also worked as an editorial consultant for publishing houses and newspapers.
Established as a freelance designer in 1989, I started my own studio and launched Garcia fonts & co type project. My first typefaces date back to the late 80’s when computers were at their first stage.
I co-founded Typerware (1996-2001), a studio specialized in any kind of projects based on typography, working for clients such as La Vanguardia newspaper, La Fura dels Baus and Primavera Sound Festival, among others. In 2003 I launched Typerepublic, a digital type foundry where I release and license some of my own fonts, and design custom typefaces for brands and corporate identities. I have designed custom typefaces for companies such as SEAT/Wolkswagen group, Victoria’s Secret, Acciona, Ferrovial, and text typefaces for newspapers such as La Gaceta, Tribuna (Salamanca, Spain) and La Discusión (Chile).
I have been awarded with two Certificates of Excellence in Type Design by the TDC (New York, 2002 – 2005) and a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design by the ATypI (Rome, 2001). I won a ED award in 2010 and a commendation at Creative review type design Award. I was also awarded the Adobe “Power of Design” award in 1997 and the “People’s Choice award” at Macromedia, San Francisco in 1997.
Some of my work have been featured in several publications and exhibitions and some of them is now part of Archives and Museum collections.
