SMeltery is an independent typefoundry comfortably installed in the southwest of France. It was launched in 2002 by Jack Usine during his art studies.
Type design laboratory within the Garcia Usine studio (www.gusto.fr), SMeltery offers a colorful collection of whimsical and mixed fonts. Usine’s production goes along with research works around vernacular typography. Inspired by the urban landscape, handmade letterings, artisanal signs, these typographic experiments are full of visual anecdotes of all kinds.
