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.

Poblet is a typeface I codesigned with Andreu Balius at Typerepublic.

The project started as a piece of lettering for Abadia de Poblet’s wine comissioned by JJBertran, a graphic design studio from Barcelona focused on wine, beer and olive labels. This initial lettering was influenced by the late nineteenth century typeface called Elzevir Condensed in its solid version but, once finished, the idea of developing a typeface out of the it was more obvious.

The final result is a very condensed high contrast typeface for display sizes in three diferent styles: solid, diamond & bevel.
