  • Dino dos Santos


DSType Foundry

In the early 90s, Dino dos Santos, founder of DSType, began designing typefaces due to the limited availability of fonts at the time, as he expressed in his Creative Characters interview. His approach was not simply to select an available typeface after creating a graphic design, but to design fonts that complement his new typographic experience. Dino, based in Porto, Portugal, first started creating fonts for magazines and large corporations. Disappointed with the restricted choice of system fonts and dry transfer sheets, he began selling his own typefaces on MyFonts. The self-educated designer has since built a library filled with striking experiments and charming designs.
