Thierry Gouttenègre is a Belgian designer (b. 1961), who is located in Tullins-Fures, France. After a stint as type director of Alfac-Decadry in Belgium, Thierry Gouttenègre moved to the south of France and started his own Design Studio in the mid 90s. In 2007, he set up TeGeType. He is one of my favorite type designers. His fonts:
- Aldogizio (2013). The name gives the font away, an amalgamation of Aldo Novarese and Egizio---this is a slab serif fest.
- Batarde Bourguignonne: a medieval blackletter.
- Carcel (2009): striped letters.
- Cinio (2009): used for signage by several French cities. For use on screen, he slightly rounded the corners and released the result as Cinio Text in 2019.
- David Aubert (1992, Alfac): a bastarda (bâtarde bourguignonne) named after David Aubert, the calligrapher of Philippe Le Bon and Charles Le téméraire, both dukes of Burgundy who worked and lived in Brussels in the 1500s.
- Dickens (1995, Fonderie Barthélémy).
- Dilectus (2019). Originally intended for musea, this lapidary typeface takes inspiration from paleochristian engravings.
- Falace (2008): a contemporary interpretation of the Didone typefaces.
- Firmin Didot (1989, Alfac).
- Fournier (1990, Alfac).
- Fraktur (1990, Alfac).
- Grégoire (1994, Fonderie Barthélémy).

- Kafka (1994, Fonderie Barthélémy).
- Limine (2008), a 3D beveled typeface family in styles called Creux and Relief.

- Majuscule (1991, Alfac).
- Neutre (1997, Fonderie Barthélémy). A sans family specially designed for signposting applications. This type family is used by several cities in France.
- Oculi Magni (2020). Specially designed for small and tight texts, the glyphs have maximal x-height.
- Otsu Sans (2011) and Otsu Slab (2013).
- Poltrone (2010), a great titling family inspired by 19-th century public inscriptions.
