Yomar Augusto is a typographic artist and graphic designer from Brazil who relocated recently to Southern California after running his studio in New York City for the past 3 years. Born in Brasilia and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Yomar initially trained as a graphic designer before going on to study photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2001.

He then started his own studio in Rio before completing a Masters in Type Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, The Netherlands. Yomar then spent eight years living in The Netherlands and working in type, design and art, in both commercial and educational sectors.

Yomar has also presented commercial and conceptual projects with solo exhibitions in Asia, Europe, North & South America.

Yomar also taught Typography for Advertising at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam between 2011 and 2012 and at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. He has also held a number of experimental calligraphy and book art workshops in many countries, including Brazil, United States, Russia, Turkey, China, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Germany and The Netherlands.

In 2011, Yomar was invited to talk at TDC New York and has also been published by TDC Tokyo, Japan.

Solo exhibitions include Andoverpis, which was held at the Catapult gallery in Antwerp, Belgium and Berlugustopol at pictogram in Warsaw, Poland. Collecting Things was his first solo show in New York, hosted at by the Type Directors Club in 2013.
