Hello!
I'm a type designer and letterist based in Porto, Portugal. I also write and teach about type-related subjects.

Scannerlicker! is a micro type foundry run by me, Fábio Duarte Martins, since 2009. This is my solo venture, after roughly a decade working as a graphic designer.

I fell in love with letters and gradually ended up doing just type design. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do!

Every typeface is design with lots of love and released onto the world so you can make beautiful things with it.

Can't find the perfect typeface?
Then we can craft it together, tailor-made just for you.

Whether you need some missing characters, want to correct your logo, need some titles or want a full feature custom typeface, I'm your man.

I have designed typefaces for clients such as Sony Computer Entertainment (Minecraft, woo!), ABC Network, Disney, FEST and Clockwork Watch, to name a few.

I'm more than happy to have a chat with you, so we can sort out how I can help you.

Want to know what I can do in 40 minutes?
Everyday (well, almost), I make a micro-typeface (one word’s worth of glyphs) in 40 minutes.

Typerobics is my daily journal of typeface sketches, where I log a skill development game: a word is designed, from scratch, under 40 minutes.

It also serves as a catalogue of type styles, so feel free to check it out if you're wondering about what I'm able to do.

Want to learn about type?
I enjoy teaching dearly, so much that I blog about type design and typography regularly, for free.

Typography and type design are silent and subtle crafts, filled with optical illusions, tech-geekery, odd terms and apparent esoteria.

But, as any craft, it can be mastered. If you'd like to learn some more about type, check my articles.
