Born in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua and raised in Durango, Mexico. Ricardo Gonzalez is a graphic designer focused on lettering, typography, calligraphy & art installations. His passion for letterforms comes from his childhood when looking at old letters written in Spencerian by his grandfather in the 1950’s.
In 2008 Ricardo moved to Canada where he studied graphic design at Mohawk College. After his studies, he worked as a screen printer for two years in Ottawa ON, during this time he rediscovered his passion for calligraphy and began to experiment with letterforms.
In the fall of 2012 he moved to Toronto to work as a freelance graphic designer, but after just four months he headed down south to his hometown of Durango, Mexico, to work full-time as an independent designer. Then, in the summer of 2014, he moved to New York City to attend Type@Cooper where he earned a typeface design diploma from Cooper Union.
Ricardo is currently based in Brooklyn.
