ABOUT







Joan Trochut-Blanchard

Catalan designer (b. 1920, Caldes de Montbui, d. 1980, Barcelona) of Bisonte (Fonderie Typographique Française, 1950), Juventud (script typeface at the Fonderie Typographique Francaise, 1950; Hutchings mentions the Gans Foundry: this is, in fact, the Gans version of his Muriel), Muriel (Fonderie Typographique Française, 1950, a script face), Novadam (a logotype from the 1940s; also called Sphlex) and the modular art deco family Supertipo Veloz (Fundición José Iranzo, 1942).

Rebecca Alaccari and Patrick Griffin (Canada Type) published a revival and elaborate extension of Muriel as Blanchard. Novadam, a great geometric black modern face, was digitized by Nick Curtis as Novadam Obese (2005). Nick Curtis's Conga Line NF (2002) and Super Bob Triline are based on SuperVeloz.

Super Veloz allows snap-on serifs and incredible modularity, thanks to the implementation by Andreu Balius and Alex Trochut.

Barcelona; Joan y Esteban Trochut, ABUNDANCIA (catalog), Barcelona (1950's).

Digital descendants: Conga Line NF (1999-2002, Nick Curtis); the lower case of Astoria Titling (Nick Curtis) is based on Super Veloz. Andreu Balius's free family Trochut (2012, Google Web Fonts) is based on Bisonte. Balius and Alex Trochut co-designed Super Veloz in 2005.
