Touriga Casual is one of the 40+ alphabets including in our Sign Painting book. It was created by Brazilian type designer Fernando Mello based on his studies of sign painter casuals from around the world.

Fernando joined us for the online launch of the book in July and told the story of his alphabet. He also shared some practice posters that he’s developed. These can be downloaded and printed at home [PDF, 672KB] to paint over and learn the strokes of Touriga Casual. Here’s the video that shows these in action.

Thank you Fernando for sharing the story behind the alphabet. And also for supplying these resources in support of your contribution to Sign Painting.
