Alberto Romanos was born in Zaragoza, Spain, in 1980, and graduated in Industrial Design in 2002 from University of Wales, Cardiff. After working for six years as a graphic designer in Spain, he moved to London to study an MA in Graphic Branding & Identity in 2009 at London College of Communication. Since then, Alberto has worked in some of the world’s biggest branding agencies like Interbrand or Landor Associates.
With every new brief, he would often start by picturing a new typographic style, even before thinking of a potential colour palette or direction for the brand’s imagery. After sketching fonts for many brand identities and various side projects involving type, in 2014 he realised it was time to focus completely on his true passion: creating high quality fonts, setting up his own digital foundry, Branding With Type.
