This presentation will focus on the study and main characteristics of airport signage typefaces as the process for creating the »Aircrew« font family.
»Aircrew« is a display humanist sans-serif typeface which was developed as part of a master's degree thesis at EINA-Centre Universitari de Disseny i Art in Barcelona, designed for signage purposes. This typeface will be available by Tiponautas font foundry.

Ricardo Santos is a freelancing type designer, teacher at Escola Superior de Artes e Design (Caldas da Rainha) living in Lisbon (Portugal). 2013 together with other designers (Aprígio Morgado and Rúben Dias) he created the independent digital foundry Tipos das Letras, where they create, produce and commercialize typographic products like the Ruha Stencil ruler.
