ABOUT







Enric Crous-Vidal

Type and graphic designer born in Lerida, Spain (1908), who lived and worked mostly in Paris, where he had emigrated to during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). He died in 1987 in Noyon. All his fonts are available from Neufville. He was the founder of the movement that is known as Grafía Latina (or La Graphie Latine), which promoted the need to create a new system of typically Latin (as opposed to cold geometric nordic) typographic structures, graphics, alphabets and decorative ornaments.

As art director of the Fonderie Typographique Française, he designed these fonts:

  • Champs Elysées (1956).
  • Flash (1953). Digital forms include Neufville's Flash ND and the URW copy called Flashes by Ralph M. Unger (2007).
  • Aragón: an art deco face. This was digitized by Nick Curtis as La Reyna Catalina NF, 2006).
  • Ilerda (1945, Neufville). This typeface is also known as Champs Élysées in France, where it was published by FTF.
  • Les Catalanes (1952). A Western saloon font that was never produced. It was digitized by Nick Curtis as Daliwood NF (2006), and by Harold Lohner as Cattle Annie (2006).
  • Paris Light (1953), Paris Medium (1953), Paris Bold (1953): all published at Neufville.
  • Fuga de Arabescos (1954, Neufville): flowing ornaments.
  • Île de France (1960). An incised typeface.
  • Revivals of other typefaces by Crous-Vidal include Anomique (2014, Benjamin Woodlock).
