Hi, my name is Kai. I’m a partner at Atelier Carvalho Bernau since 2005. We design publications, identities, typefaces etc.

In 2014, I co-founded Open Work, a collective that explores ways of reading, modes of collaboration, methods of interaction, forms of graphic design.

With Susana Carvalho, I designed a typeface family called Algebra that was released in 2016 with Commercial Type.

Together with Christian Schwartz, we developed Atlas Grotesk and Typewriter, see http://carvalho-bernau.com/atlas/ in 2012. It too is available from Commercial Type. (This text is set in Atlas Typewriter, for example)

If you’re looking for information about my Lyon font family, you can find it here: http://carvalho-bernau.com/lyon/. I designed it in 2009/2010 and it’s available from Commercial Type.

My typeface Neutral has been majorly reworked from the original project (back in 2005) and is available from Typotheque since 2014.

I also teach type design (and sometimes publication design) at the MAAD Master programme in Art Direction at Écal, Lausanne since 2011. For the academic year 2014/2015, I was a visiting professor in Wigger Bierma’s Typo-Grafik course at HfbK Hamburg.
