Enric Jardí's interest in typography comes from professional practice. He studied design at a time when he was not taught specifically but over time he became interested specifically in this subject.
In the 90s, when the first publishers of sources for personal computers appeared, he formed with some companions a foundry that still exists, Type-Ø-Tones.
But above all he became interested in the use of the letter and was incorporated into the classes of Design that at that time and gave first in the Elisava School and later in Eina.
He has written texts, books such as "Twenty-two tips on typography (which some designers will never reveal) and twenty-two things you should never do with the letters (which some typographers will never tell you)" or "Think with images", has lectured on typography, always trying to explain things the way he would like them to have explained them. Trying to explain the reason and the origin of each thing, starting with the important thing and getting to the details and the tricks and questioning the assumptions and myths, that in typography there are many.
Apart from typography, his work focuses mainly on the design of magazines, book covers and corporate image. In collaboration with Marcus Villaça he has developed several editorial projects such as the redesign of the Chicago Reader or the Boston Phoenix.
From September 2005 to April 2009 he was president of the Association of Art Directors and Graphic Designers ADG-FAD and in October 2009 he received the National Culture Award in the Design section granted by the Generalitat de Catalunya.
