Gustavo Ferreira Appointed Director Of InfraStruction At FontStruct
Great news for users and fans of recently awarded online free font-building tool. Gustavo Ferreira is a designer specialised in digital type design and typography, but whose interests encompasses a variety of other areas that influence his design work in one way or another. He joins Rob Meek who will now be able to concentrate more on the inner workings of FontStruct, and on further improving the website. FontStruct users will have noticed Gustavo already took over the reins of most of support and communication, set up the FontStruct Twitter account, and he will soon introduce himself on Brick by Brick: News about FontStruct.
A native from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Gustavo Ferreira has lived in many other places (Brasília, Manaus, São Paulo, Cologne, Hamburg, Schwäbisch Gmünd, Den Haag). Living in different cultures taught him from an early age to look at things from many different angles simultaneously. He is fluent in Portuguese, English, and German, and is currently learning Dutch.
