L'île Foundry

In 2015 Angela Ippolito, an italian architect, and Jérémy Ruiz, a french graphic designer, founded L'île, a creative design studio. In 2021 they created L'île Foundry, an independent digital type foundry based in Milan.The name of both the studio and the foundry comes from the book La Possibilité d'une île by Michel Houellebecq (There exists in the midst of time / The possibility of an island). L'île Foundry offers a privileged space for experimentation and seeks to give typography a double identity: both an artistic creation in itself and an instrument of communication, a tool for conveying messages. At the same time unique and singular work, but nevertheless readable by all.
