We absolutely LOVE Ambroise François. We have been having fun trying to pronounce it correctly. I am so excited. Ambroise is completely unexpected on Wired. It looks so beautiful. I am super excited. I hope you will like it!

Since 2013, she is the director of design for Wired and, of course, her first task has been to redesign the magazine, adding his unique typographic touch. Its new typographic palette includes Ambroise, that brings contrast and style to this technological magazine à priori less suitable for any Didot (Modern) typefaces. Indeed, it’s more natural to find a typeface like Ambroise in a fashion magazine.
As stated during exchanges with Jean François Porchez, Ambroise is used in combination with a structured and a rigorous sanserif that vibrates the headlines and layouts. At Typofonderie, we love her accuracy, headlines precision, adjusted typeface pairings, alignments, the details that build all the charm of typography accurately used in a magazine. It’s a job of a professional. Thank you Claudia.
