Alessandro Segalini is a communication designer who specializes in typography. He studied and practiced graphic design and calligraphy both formally and informally in Milan, Helsinki, Philadelphia and Rome. He was born in Piacenza, Italy, and currently lives in San Marcos, Texas.
Alessandro co-created ISType (Istanbul Type Seminars), a lecture and workshop series devoted to encouraging typographic literacy in Turkey. In regards to education, he believes that knowledge is constructed by the learner through action; it is mediate, not immediate. Education is a process of living, and not a preparation for future living.
Hemingway™ designed by Alessandro Segalini was inspired by the prize winning novel “The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemingway. The typeface has been selected for the UK Creative Review Type Annual 2011 within the Display category.
