Speakeasy is a 5-font combo thematically built as a toolset for designing menus and liquor labels but also for coffees, restaurants and signs that communicate with style. Originally put together to be used by the most famous speakeasy in Buenos Aires, this set contains a script, a minor (almost flat) wedge serif, a flare serif, a sans serif, and a bold Didone.
One of the founders of the Sudtipos project, a key reference for the quality of its work. His work has contributed enormously in placing Argentina firmly on the map of Graphic Design. Ale’s career as an art director landed him in some of Argentina’s most prestigious studios, and handling such high-profile corporate brands.
With the founding of Sudtipos Ale shifted his efforts to typeface design, creating fonts and lettering for several top packaging agencies, along with commercial faces. In 2012 his font Piel Script was selected at Letter2. He has received many certificates of excellence from the Type Directors Club NY, TDC Tokyo, Commarts and from several international biennials.
He teaches a postgraduate typography program at the University of Buenos Aires, where he previously taught graphic design. He has also taught seminars and spoken at the AGI Open, Type Master Weeks NY, TypoBerlin, TypeCon, Pecha Kucha and Atypi conferences, at the TDC, etc.
Some of his work is part of the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston and the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires.
