Type works


Ghouls is my first commercial font. It is a pixel blackletter font intended for display purposes and low resolution applications. Inspired by retro arcade games and experimental modular type design. It also works as a layer font to create a psychedelic dot effect. Buy it here.

Input font tribute

A fictional book cover/poster designed as a homage to the great type design of Input, a code font by David Jonathan Ross. This was part of a study in open type features, conducted by the great Crystian Cruz.

Type Design

10 years or so of sketching typefaces around came to a very pleasant closure in meeting Fontstruct, an online, modular-based font editor. All fonts are available for free download under a non-commercial use license here.

Assim é se lhe Parece

Series of animated pieces (and a few outtakes) I created, along with my brother Vitor Cervi, for the documentary ‘Assim é se lhe parece’, directed by Carla Gallo. The film goes around the life and works of brazilian post-modernist artist Nelson Leirner. We received some quotes that would mark moments of the cut, and had a lot of freedom to conceive the images. The layouts were based mainly on vintage propaganda and Pop Art, but we also had this idea, fundamented by my feelings concerning Leirner’s work, that there should be no visual identity connecting the animations, just a misplaced sense of popular and common stuff.
