Tipo Aquilo logo

Tipo Aquilo (Like That Type) is a Portuguese-written biweekly newsletter about typography, reflections and musings on design and society, with more than 70 editions since 2019. The purpose of Tipo Aquilo is to tell stories and contextualize the typography technology state-of-art with history for other designers and people interested in learning about letters, letterforms and fonts.

In 2022, “Tipo Aquilo” moved to Substack and gained a new logo and visual identity featuring a diverse colour palette, patterns and a custom typeface. Although still in development, the grotesque font family Bastão is featured in several applications of Tipo Aquilo on Substack and Instagram, such as posts, stories and other assets.
