Geneo: a synthesis of historic and present-day visions of typography by Stéphane Elbaz

This typeface a synthesis of historic and present-day visions of typography, a slab serif constructed on an oblique axis. Few years after its publication and certain success, here we go again on optimizing the spacing and kerning of the typeface family along few other design details.

As a foundry, we’re constantly listenning to our customers, and looking at previous published designs, to see if we can correct and improve certains things.
