ABOUT







Philippe Apeloig

French type designer (b. Paris, 1962) who designed the experimental fonts Carré, Octobre (a stencil in the De Stijl genre), and Aleph in 1994. [The digital versions of these fonts are due to Franck Montfermé.] First prize at the Tokyo Type Directors Club in 1995, and a Judges' Special Prize at the same competition in 1999. Poster exhibition. Bio.

Since 1992, he has been teaching typography at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs.

In 2012, the people at Nouvelle Noire in Zurich helped produce several of Apeloig's typefaces:

  • In the De Stijl genre: Octobre (1994), Ndebele.
  • The geometric typeface ABF.
  • ABF Lineaire (2013). A stencil typeface with elements of LED letters.
  • ABF Silhouette (2009). Based on ABF Petiit, this typeface was developed for the 2009 conference on the Space and Architecture of Libraries.
  • ABF Petit. Custom designed as part of a new corporate identity for the Association des Bibliothécaires de France.
  • Coupé (2013): The font Coupé is based on the streamlined elegance of vintage sports cars. Apeloig designed these letterforms for an exhibition of fashion designer Ralph Lauren's car collection. The exhibition made its European premiere at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris accompanied by a poster inspired by the clean engineering of the automobiles.
  • Izocl (2013). At Nouvelle Noire.
  • Poudre (2013). This font was created by Apeloig for a poster advertising an exhibition on the prolific inventor and industrialist Alfred Nobel. Apeloig's concept was inspired by Nobel's invention of dynamite and work with subatomic particles.
  • Ali (2013). An origami stencil typeface.
  • Aleph (1994). Based on a simple arc, and influenced by Excoffon's banco (1952).
  • In 2016, he designed the numbers for the Slim d'Hermes watch.
