I am Carlos de Toro, an independent graphic and type designer from Spain now based in The Hague (NL)Logroño(Spain), London (UK).

I have previous work experience in type, branding, editorial design and packaging. I design fonts and lettering for clients.


I am an Independent Type Designer and Art Director from Spain. I graduated from Type and Media Master at KABK (Royal Academy of Arts The Hague, Netherlands) in 2018.

I have also experience in type, graphic, branding and editorial design due to my previous education and work experience as designer for newspaper, advertisement agencies, design studios and companies.

I divide my time between commissioned work for client and self-projects. I am continually looking for new challenges and projects that make me grow up as a designer and develop my skills while I keep designing or just drawing letters. My work is inspired by history, typographic needs and experimentation. I am currently open for collaboration on exciting projects.
