THE FOUNDRY    
     

Tipo is formed by typographers Darío M. Muhafara and Eduardo Rodríguez Tunni, who started creating a type foundry that would promote high quality, Latin American typographic families, stressing those typographies which are used for text and trying to insert them within the international market.

Tipo, and the designers who contribute with their sources to this project, wish to meet the international typographic needs of their clients, based on innovative designs that will meet, as well, all international quality standards.
