Throughout this 2014 year, designers have created for you specific wallpaper calendars, free to download and set in Typofonderie typefaces. Each month, it’s also a great opportunity to ask few questions to our monthly guest designer. For the month of March 2014, it’s Stéphane Elbaz who has chosen the Ardoise, designed by Jean François Porchez. He answers to our questions.
