Coming from a background in architecture, typography and illustration in São Paulo, Brazil, Fernando Mello went to the UK in 2006, where he enrolled in the MA in Typeface Design program of the University of Reading, to which he was approved in 2007 with a Distinction. Apart from exercising his skills in designing functional text typefaces, in Reading he developed a study on Tamil type design. His joint Latin-Tamil MA typeface work received different recognitions from renowned institutions such as TDC Tokyo, Ed Awards and Tipos Latinos Biennial. 
With a keen eye for good curves and well designed font families, Fernando has collaborated in the past in a few projects with Tiro Typeworks and is now a full-time type designer at Fontsmith in London.
