Next Saturday (15 of December), we will be at the Font Market in Zurich.
We will not sell anything, but take this opportunity to present a project we find relevant in the typographic field.
swiss typefaces presents:
swiss typefaces invites designer Thibault Brevet to collaborate and experiment with the open-source vector plotter that he developed as part of his recent graduation project at ECAL Grand-Central.
Ian Party, Emmanuel Rey and Andrea Anner will experiment with shapes/characters and print on the reworked version of the machine.
The idea behind Font Market is to make possible a personal meeting with font designers. It promotes personal exchange and allows participants and visitors to discover and discuss the latest developments and trends.

After three typographic posters workshops at ECV Provence, I was invited to lead a type design workshop.
The students designed a large family of fonts, intended to be used as headline typefaces in a magazine workshop later this year.
Each group of students was given a specific section or article of the future magazine (the group in charge of the cover chose PAVANE as the name of the magazine and designed its logotype).
They never had the opportunity to design outside Illustrator, to generate font files, etc., so I also quickly introduced them to RoboFont (thanks!), drawing and font production with a professional and dedicated software during the week.
And of course, at the end, it was essential to design and print a specimen to show the typefaces at their best.

Suisse Int'l and Neue in use in Adventice magazine. Adventice magazine use for titling a private typeface done at ECAL during the master programme
Adventice is a publication of observations, analysis and visual essays.It is independently published and distributed twice a year.
Adventice concentrates on the confrontation of different topics, highlighting the tension between conflicting subjects. Despite it being an art publication, it strives to create a dialogue between various fields. Authors such as writers, photographers, designers, biologists and illustrators explore the specificities of the given theme. The diverse approaches concentrate on the ungrateful and usually left aside aspects of the question.
Each issue focuses on the encounter of specific and precise disciplines, presenting several personal interpretations and contains an insert which
introduces an academical or scientific research. However our aim is not to give thorough knowledge, rather it is a specialized cultural publication. The project aspires to push the limits and even take on insignificant matters.
