Laura Meseguer

Graphic Design and Typography

Laura Meseguer is a graphic designer and type designer living and working in Barcelona. She was a partner in Cosmic design studio until 2005, when she opened her own studio, where she develops projects related to identity, editorial and typeface design. She is a member of Type-Ø-Tones, a Barcelona group of type designers which runs its own independent foundry. In 2003–2004, she took a year off from her regular work to study type design at the post-graduate course ‘Type]Media’ of the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, the Netherlands. Rumba, the typeface she designed as part of this course, was selected in the TDC TypeDesign Competition 2005 and as one of "Our favourite forns of 2006" by typographica.org. She has participated in exhibitions and conferences in Spain and Europe. Professor of Typography in the Escola Elisava and Escola Eina. Member of AtypI.

  • MULTI™, a versatile sans serif typeface family -

    Multi is my first extensive typeface family. It was originally commissioned by the publisher of Dutch regional newspapers in 2011, with the aim to match the serif typefaces (Lexicon and Tiempos) used for a comprehensive layout overhaul project supervised by editorial art director Luis Mendo. The keywords provided by the client were unequivocal: warm, dynamic, optimistic, friendly, human… Two series were designed, Multi Text (two weights, roman & italic) and Multi Headline (six weights, roman). Since the completion of this first version, I have considerably expanded the character set and the family, and implemented a few modifications: Multi Text now comprises three weights (roman & italic) and Multi Headline was renamed Multi Display (seven weights, roman & italic).
