ABOUT







Floris [Lucas de Groot]

In 1999 Lucas de Groot was commissioned to design a new headline face for the French daily Le Monde. In 2001, this typeface won an award in ATypI's worldwide Bukvah:Raz! type design competition. de Groot explains: The Le Monde typeface was further developed, resulting in Floris LM, a rather narrow display face in six weights with pronounced vertical stress. Its condensed structure and expressive shapes allow for economic yet attention-grabbing headline setting. In 2007, Floris was redrawn as part of a drastic redesign of the German weekly Jungle World. Floris JW is a headline family in weights, from ExtraLight to Black. The Jungle World project also resulted in Floris Text, a new typeface for publications, which is still under development.. The Floris font has been developed along fours axes, with sixteen masters in all. Retail styles include Floris SP and Floris Text.
