Hi! I’m Carlos de Toro, a Spanish graphic & type designer currently based between Barcelona & Logroño. I'm deeply interested in type, branding and editorial design.

I graduated at ESDIR and moved to Barcelona to course MA in Advanced Typography in UAB. 2nd September 2013 I released Born, my first typeface (you can download here), since then I haven't stopped working in typography stuff; Recently I released my new typeface Recia published by The Indian Type Foundry.

Until now I've worked in different studios and companies like Würth, Vocento, MM and Bullitt (now). I'm working freelance in branding, packaging, editorial and type design and production, and constantly looking for new challenges and projects which make me grow up as designer. Now I'm also working as external type designer for The Indian Type Foundry.

For any question, say hello, comment, fortune telling... please feel free to drop me a line to hello@carlosdetoro.com
