What is it?
Designing letterforms intended for eventual manufacture as fonts, whatever the medium: lead, photographic, or digital.
Jérémie Nuel studied graphic design at Strasbourg (France). Afterwards he worked as an independent graphic designer at Lyon (France) for three years. Then he lived in Tokyo for one year, working as an artistic director for a design agency. Since he went back to France, he works with Simon Renaud (A is a name). They are putting the notion of evolution into their design process as a cycle of graphic research concentrated on typographic systems.
Jason, born and raised in Glasgow, is a design graduate from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. His road to fulfilling his ambition of becoming a type designer led him to The Northern Block in 2013 when he began his apprenticeship programme. Jason has a clean, structural style — shaped by his love of modernism — and has a strong interest in the functionality of letters.
Graphic designer, letterer and typographer.
I’m interested in old vernacular type designs, and determined to learn every aspect of manual typography, calligraphy, lettering, or letterpress printing.
I’m part of Familia Plómez, pre-digital typographic collective and letterpress workshop based in Madrid, and Unostiposduros.com, the most important spanish typographic website.
I have teached typography in several places, like IED Madrid and MrMarcel School. I have also taughed type, lettering and letterpress.
