About

Hello! I am Henrique Beier and this is my type foundry. From my office in Porto Alegre, Brazil, I develop custom and retail typefaces, as well as provide font production services to other foundries and type designers.

I started Harbor Type in 2014 with the release of Densia Sans. At first available on a pay-what-you-want basis, it was well received by the public and inspired me to continue designing typefaces for a living. Later on came Graviola, Garibaldi, Malva and others.

Along the way I learned that fonts are more than just nice letterforms. They stand at the crossroads of design and technology, which is why I also pay special attention to the technical aspects of typography. This includes correct bezier handling, extensive language support, OpenType features and hinting.

The quality of my work has been recognized in multiple editions of the Tipos Latinos Biennial, ADG Biennial, Hiii Typography and Typographica. My fonts are used by companies all over the world, such as JSW Paints, Tigre, Grupo A, SwitchMy.com, Haeghe Groep, Traplight and Employers For Childcare.

If you’d like me to work on your project, send me an email.
