Blackletra is a digital type foundry run by Brazilian type designer Daniel Sabino, currently based in São Paulo. Established in 2012, the foundry develops custom and retail typefaces as well as lettering and logotypes.
The company’s typefaces combines historical interest with calligraphic influences and sometimes unusual ideas.
Daniel Sabino’s first typeface, Karol, was awarded the Certificate of Excellence from the New York Type Directors Club in 2013. Two years later, Haltrix received the same accolade. Blackletra’s work has also been recognized by Bienal Tipos Latinos, Red Dot Award, Brasil Design Awards, Premios Laus, Morisawa and Bienal da ADG.
