Abelina» is a typeface that can be used in display sizes for titles where part of the central premise is to emulate certain features of gestural handwriting.
Concepts like spontaneity, speed and fluidity, associated with the use of certain calligraphic tools – in this case the pointed brush – led to a typographic result based on the pattern-like structure coming from the chancery and italic calligraphic models.
«Abelina» - initially designed by Yanina Arabena (Calligrapher, Graphic Designer and Typographer) - is reborn to make way for “Abelina Pro” through the solid work of Guillermo Vizzari working together with Ale Paul from Sudtipos.
Throughout its use, “Abelina Pro” maintains the structure of a firm style, integrating a dynamic rhythm in the composition of short texts and offering personality to each of the words it builds. It has over a thousand glyphs, including several alternates, ligatures combination, initials and miscellaneous to reinforce the idea of the author of merging a calligraphic project in the typographic world; allowing new ways to capture this great universe of italic faces.
«Abelina» project was initially born as a typographic project developed by Yanina Arabena – tutored byAle Paul and Ana Sanfelippo – under completion of the Specialization in Typography Design at University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the years 2011 and 2012.

Styrian rooted and with a name dedicated to a region with soft rocks, forested mountains, narrow valleys and clear air “Muriza” is a modest slab serif with temptious curves: Its clear and economic typography linked to peculiarly shapes—like curved spurs instead of serifs—combines well working normalcy with refreshing uniqueness.
With a range of nine well graduated weights—from delicate Hairline to sturdy Black—and a conventional but distinctive italic “Muriza” can fulfil almost every typographic wish until it is related to a sober design. Furthermore OpenType layout features like oldstyle figures, small caps and stylistic alternates or dingbats and arrows are included as well as an extended language support with most Latin-based scripts supported.

Just found me as the doctor on a random tumblr. Score.
We are part of the universe. Our earth was created from the universe and will one day be reabsorbed into the universe. We are made of the same matter and energy as the universe.
We are not in exile here: we are at home … The universe creates us, preserves us, destroys us. It is deep and old beyond our ability to reach with our senses. It is beautiful beyond our ability to describe in words. It is complex beyond our ability to fully grasp in science. This wonder is everywhere inside you and outside you and you can never be separated from it.

My good friends in Japan asked me to create a graphic for their new skate brand, Granpup Skateboards. They just got their first run printed and they look rad. More details of where to buy these coming real soon…
This guy is a design champion!
