Font Designer – Caio de Marco Tony de Marco

Tony and Caio de Marco created the font Samba™ in 2003.
The Samba family was inspired by the lettering art of J. Carlos, a Brazilian illustrator during the early 20th century. Turned into a workable series of fonts by the contemporary Brazilian designers Tony and Caio de Marco, Samba is especially recommended for use in logos, flyers, posters, and tattoos! This family of types offers the user a chance to mix three different styles of lettering into one coherent design, which can be very useful in solving certain design problems. While the regular Samba face is made up of mono-line letters, the style of Samba bold offers much more of a thick to thin contrast. The Samba Expert set displays lavish swash endings, which were inspired by Brazilian metal work.
The Samba family was one of the winners selected during the 2003 International Type Design Contest, sponsored by Linotype GmbH.
Tony de Marco is the editor of Tupigrafia, a Brazilian magazine devoted to typography and calligraphy.
The Know How section offers detailed background knowledge to deal with all enquiries about the use of fonts.
