Mario De Libero, a graduate of the Undergraduate Programme in Advertising Communication and student of Typography and Calligraphy – The Font Design at IED Firenze, is among the finalists with the font Otello Sans in the fourth Olivetti Design Contest.
The contest, focusing on Type Design, involved the development of a new typeface project for Olivetti. With its focus on artists, young people and designers, the company - always looking for innovation, experimentation and design - shows how much it wants to carry on the teachings passed on by Adriano Olivetti.
The Otello typeface, which came third, is a wonderful tribute to the spirit of modernist typography made in Italy, with plenty of invention and talent.
The projects were assessed by the Jury headed by Clino Trini Castelli (artist and designer, author of Libri Rossi Olivetti - Manuals of Corporate Identity) and consisting of such experts as Emanuele Cappelli (designer), Gaetano di Tondo (Olivetti Director of Communication & External Relations, and President of Associazione Archivio Storico Olivetti), Luca Josi (Head of Brand Strategy, Media & Multimedia Entertainment of Tim), Walter Mariotti (Editor-in-chief of Editoriale Domus), Chiara Alessi (Curator and essayist), Matteo Bologna (designer and founder of Mucca Design), James Clough (historian and lecturer in typography at Naba), Lorenzo Fanton (designer at Pentagram), Antonio Pace (type designer) and Jonathan Pierini (type and graphic designer, Director of ISIA Urbino).
Olivetti Design Contest is jointly developed by Emanuele Cappelli and Olivetti with a view to carrying on Adriano Olivetti's heritage.
IED decided to reward those students who commit up front with a special Early Bird discount.
