Andreu Balius

Typegraphics — August, 2013

Andreu is a type designer who lives in Barcelona, Spain. He studied Sociology and later, Graphic Design. In 1992, he started to manage the typographical project, Garcia fonts & co, where he's been collaborating together with Joan Carles (Typerware) since 1993 to 2001. In 2003, he started to run his own digital type foundry in Barcelona, Typerepublic, where he's been involved in type design & typography, working on corporate and custom typefaces, advising other designers or engaged in collaborative work. Nevertheless, he also enjoys doing some graphic work where typography is used. He cannot conceive designing typefaces without a good knowledge on how type is used. Andreu has written the book  "Type at work. The use of Type in Editorial Design" and lots of articles for magazines and other publications. He's won lots of prizes, like the TDC, ATypI, Adobe and Macromedia. He also teaches lettering & type design in Pompeu Fabra University and gives workshops in different cities. Andreu has held conferences for some congress like ATypI, SND-NH, ImagineIT, and he was the main speaker in The International Type Conference of Valencia and Madrid, Spain (2004). He's also a member of AGI (Alliance Graphique Internationale).
