ABOUT







Louise Fili

Founded in 1989, Louise Fili Ltd is a graphic design studio specializing in brand development for food packaging and restaurants. Formerly senior designer for Herb Lubalin, Louise Fili was art director of Pantheon Books from 1978 to 1989, where she designed close to 2,000 book jackets. She has received Gold and Silver Medals from the Society of Illustrators and the New York Art Director's Club, the Premio Grafico from the Bologna Book Fair, and three James Beard award nominations. Fili has taught and lectured extensively, and her work is in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, the Cooper Hewitt Museum, and the Bibliothèque Nationale.

She is co-author, with Steven Heller, of Italian Art Deco, British Modern, Dutch Moderne, Streamline, French Modern, Deco Type, Deco España, German Modern, Design Connoisseur, "Typology Type Design from the Victorian Era to the Digital Age" (Chronicle Books, San Francisco, 1999), Typology, Stylepedia, Euro Deco, Scripts, Shadow Type, Belles Lettres, Cover Story, and Stencil Type. Fili has also written Elegantissima, Grafica della Strada, Graphique de la Rue, The Cognoscenti's Guide to Florence, and Italianissimo. A member of the Art Directors Hall of Fame, she has received the medal for Lifetime Achievement from the AIGA and the Type Directors Club.

Her book cover (done with Jessica Hische) won a design award at TDC 55.

In 2015, she made a futuristic counterless typeface, Mardell, which is named after retired Hamilton type cutter Mardell Doubek. It was published in 2016 as HWT Mardell in the HWT (Hamilton Wood Type) collection over at P22.

In 2017, Louise Fili, Nicholas Misani and Rachel Michaud co-designed the art nouveau typeface Montecatini, which is inspired by Italian travel posters from that era. Marseille (2017) is co-designed with Nicholas Masani. It is an art deco-inspired letterform that is based on Louise Fili's cover design for the Marguerite Duras novel The Lover.

Keynote speaker at TypeCon 2018 in Portland, OR.
