Hello! I’m Ricard, a type designer, letterer & code enthusiast from Barcelona. I love jazz too.

Reinforcing the voice of each message my work goes from unique pieces to full typefaces & generative art.

This is the kind of project that started as a joke. When I was a student at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Antònia Monroig was a classmate and I loved both her illustrations and her handwriting.

At one point we were at the bar and I asked her if it would interesting for her to have a typeface imitating her handwriting. She said so and after that I asked her different copies of pangrams and sets of numbers, ligatures and symbols writen by her. The project was a beautiful journey that, even though I lived it from the production side, ended up in a very nice way.

The result is a typeface that fakes Nina’s handwriting because it has four versions of each character that combine in an (almost) random way to make it look like it is as random as handwriting. It is of course naive but that’s the whole point. It can be used for both children books or grown ups illustrations magazines.

Nina comes with a set of discretionary ligatures that make it even more related to the human hand. It also has a set of symbols that can be used inside text or to create patterns.
