The Alfabet is a titling, sans-serif typeface, inspired both by the work of engineers Timothy Epps and Christopher Evans (1969), and letterings designed by painter and architect Theo Van Doesburg in the 1920s.
Based on a 25-square grid, its design once again attempts to rationalize to the extreme the canonical structure of the Latin alphabet.

Alphabet intended to be read by a machine, Timothy Epps and Christopher Evans, National Physical Laboratory, Division of Computer Science, Great Britain, 1969.

The Buro is a text font, monospaced, sans-serif with rounded endings.
It is characterized by its monolinear outline (low contrast, light optical corrections) and its discontinuous Roman structure. It tries to reproduce the outline of a letter drawn with a pen. Buro’s design is inspired by the cursive letters used in Olympia typewriters of the 1950s.

Specimen

The Bevel is a titling, stencil and sans-serif typeface. His design is inspired by a series of old zinc stencils bearing the names of different villages in the Tarn region (France).
Its mechanical structure and its total absence of curves, make its design particularly raw and robust. It is characterized by its surprising tenons, in particular in its ‘M’ and its ‘N’. Its solidity is accentuated by the proportions of its narrow letters, and its low spacing.
