Natanael was born in 1988 in Caldas da Rainha, a small Portuguese city. He studied Graphic and Multimedia Design at ESAD.CR where he graduated in 2009. While studying he attended typography classes and here he found out he liked designing typefaces.
What started as fun turned into something more serious after he funded Exo (his first released typeface) through the Kickstarter platform. Since that time Natanael has worked as graphic and typographic designer. Nowadays Natanael lives in Lisbon and works for various companies including Google Fonts.
