SMeltery is a letter manufacturer founded in 2002. It is located in Castillon-la-Bataille (South West of France). It is merged with the graphic design house Bon Pour 1 Tour. SMeltery, small type foundry created and directed by Jack Usine, offers a colorful collection of nonconformist typefaces. Its production is deliberately irregular and whimsical in order to fight against the ambient glumness of this world. Inspired by his environment, Usine reveals in his creations a fascination for artisanal and incongruous signs and their relation to the urban landscape.
