Fleur Pellerin, Minister of Culture and Communication handed out on 9 April 2015 to Jean François Porchez, typeface designer, the knight badge in the order of Arts and Letters, in recognition of his significant contributions to the arts, literature, or the propagation of these fields in favor of French culture.
Since many years, graphic designers, customers ask us questions about where they could learn to create typefaces without taking a year off at MATD or KABK. This is in order to respond to what’s missing in Europe, particularly in France, that we have decided to work on this project since summer 2014. We’re now proud to announce the launch of this new Typofonderie activity. Type@Paris is the first intensive type design program in Paris, offering a unique approach in Europe to learn type design from scratch (or almost) following a long tradition of curriculum started in France in the 70’s.
Best wishes for this new year 2015. We wish you a year ahead full of promise and success. All our best wishes for happiness and prosperity. Thanks to all for your great support, we are excited to publish in 2015 the new typefaces we work on since few years!
Since 1994, for each typeface published by Typofonderie, a printed specimen is designed. The explanation is very simple: before the web, this was in fact the only way to present correctly a typeface. The web has changed that, a lot. What’s the function of a typeface specimen? A real tool for graphic designers, to check the style and functionalities of typefaces they may potentially need as part of any new projects?
Following last year success, we are so happy to launch a second set of Try-out fonts this year. The online samples, pdfs and printed specimens, online testing help to confirm if a typeface can be appropriate to a new project. But you want to be sure the quality is there. It’s only when your fonts are installed that you can really confirm if the expected quality is there. It’s why we have introduced what we call Try-out fonts. Enjoy!
As designers, we all appreciate tangible things and not just digital tools such as our fonts yet fabulously useful in everyday’s life. This is why we love Typofonderie’s printed specimens, stickers, and other objects that reminds us of our love of typography. We are happy to announce the launch of the 2014 edition of the Typographic tote bag and its associated offers!
As part of the publication of the monograph on the work of Jean François Porchez published by Atelier Perrousseaux éditeur, the design bookshop Artazart is organizing a launch party in presence of the designer and two of the four contributors to the book, Muriel Paris and Aaron Levin.
