The idea of this project called Squalo popped into my mind while I was working with excitement on some sketches. I was chasing after a strong typographical character, something that for me has actually to be taken shape in kind which is constantly understandable and functional.

The concept

The concept of Squalo develops from the observation of an athlete's body: you see that even if the majority of are lean, they are likewise strong, cut and chiselled. The sport they play molds and modify their bodies.

Just think, for instance, on an expert swimmer: throughout the competitors each and every single muscle, tendon, tissue, cell is working to swim quicker. Every single part exists to give strength and speed like in a "squalo" (shark in italian). Not as an eel, nor as a mermaid, nor as a hake. Similar to a shark.

If you take a fast appearance, you will notice that the width of the typeface is a little more condensed than that of a standard sans serif. We created Squalo by doing this specifically to help and reinforce your ideas through elegant typography.

We designed the joins and terminals (idea ends) of the characters A, V, W, Z, v, w, z, to produce a sensation of "stress", reinforcing the principle of shark, danger, caution, too explicit, intentional movement. Pure strength. We desired to remember the precise minute of the start of the 100 meters race: when the sprinter initially spreads out all of his effective energy.

The italic version, beginning with the previous two typographical concepts of width and stress, highlights them. First of all, we compressed the characters 10 percent more, and slanted it 10 degrees to the right. With this movement I intended to convey the gorgeous feeling of stress in power and rapidity.

The typeface has 9 weights, from "hair" to "black", and two variations, "routine" and "italic".

All 18 typefaces consist of small caps, unicase, tabular and oldstyle numbers, numerators and denominators, and much more.

Squalo is an ideal typeface that I suggest for usage in marketing campaigns, design of product packaging, publications, branding for tv programs, films, book texts, editorial, publications, logo designs, corporate tasks, web texts, and graphic style in motion.
