About this event


Type Design is a domain that multiple times has profited from the emergence of new tools and technologies. The transformation of type from physical to digital, the dissemination of font design software and the adoption of web typography make type design better known and more accessible. This domain has received an even greater push with the increasing adoption of generative tools to create more diverse and experimental fonts. Nowadays, with the application of Machine Learning to various domains, typography has also been influenced by it. In our work we employ different types of Machine Learning models (e.g. Autoencoders, GANs, ...) to produce new ways to design type.


Luís Gonçalo earned his Bachelor’s degree in Informatics Engineering from the University of Coimbra in 2017, and went on to receive his Master’s degree from the same institution. His thesis focused on software testing and security vulnerabilities. Currently, he is pursuing a PhD in the Doctoral Program in Informatics Engineering and working with the Cognitive Media Systems Research Group at the Centre for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra. In addition, he is an Invited Assistant Professor at the same institution. His research interests include machine learning, generative systems, computational creativity, and computational design.
