ABOUT







Xavier Dupré

French type designer (b. 1977), who studied graphic design in Paris as well as calligraphy and typography at the Scriptorium de Toulouse. From 1999 to 2001, he worked as a type designer in a packaging design agency. He collaborated with Ladislas Mandel on Renaissance writings. Since 2001, he lives at least part of the time in Asia. During this period, he designed Latin and Khmer typefaces for NGOs in Cambodia, for example. On his web site, he says that he enjoys full freedom in his work. When he is not designing typefaces, he spends time in nature or prepares vegetarian food and pastries. His work was discussed by Yves Peters. Link at ENSAE, France. Dribble link. FontShop link. He designed the following fonts:

  • The aesthetic text font Humanix, 1998.
  • FF Parango (2001). A garalde typeface.
  • The beautifully balanced family FF Reminga (2001) and FF Reminga Titling.
  • The swinging FF Jambono (2002).
  • The fifties font FF Tartine Script (2002).
  • The elegant garalde text family FF Angkoon (2003, FontFont, winner of an award at TDC2 2004).
  • The slab serif family FF Absara (2004). This typeface won an award at the TDC2 2005 type competition. It was followed in 2005 by FF Absrara Sans (FontShop) and in 2007 by FF Absara Headline and FF Absara Sans Headline.
  • Region Bretagne (2003-2016), an exclusive typeface for the Brittany province in France, based on his 12-weight typeface family Spotka (T-26, 2003), which was created in cooperation with Silas Dilworth.
  • Meteor (2003, T-26).
  • FF Megano (2005, FontShop), a humanist sans in six weights and a very eye-catching "g".
  • Zingha (Font Bureau), an all-round serif family.
  • Vista Sans (2005, Emigre): this won an award at TDC2 2006.
  • Two Khmer fonts commissioned in 2003 and 2004 for Cambodia: ApsaraLight, ApsaraRegular, ApsaraMedium, ApsaraBold, ChriengCKS-Regular, ChriengCKS-RegularAlternate (done with the help of Michel Antelme).
  • FF Sanuk (2006, FontFont), a 27-style family rooted in architectural drawing letters. FF Sanuk has subfamilies with standard suffixes such as Office, Pro, and so forth. In 2018, he added FF Sanuk Round. FF Sanuk Big Pro (2016) is a headline family with exaggerated x-height and tiny ascenders and descenders: all lungs and no legs.
  • Malaga (2007, Emigre), a 32-weight serif family with a distinctive flat-topped lower case a.
  • Vista Slab (2008, Emigre: 108 styles).
  • FF Masala (2009, round scriptish sans) and FF Masala Script (2009).
  • FF Yoga Sans and Serif (2009), a type system conceived for newspapers and magazines. The FontShop ad: FF Yoga, with its sturdy serifs is a good choice for body text, but it also serves as an original headline typeface with its subtly chiseled counters. The typeface mixes the dynamic tension of angular cuts with the balanced rhythm and elegant curves of Garalde typefaces. FF Yoga Sans is a contemporary alternative to Gill Sans and a sober companion to the serif FF Yoga.
  • Mislab (2013, Typofonderie). A slightly cursive and fully humanist slab family in 32 styles and three widths. Mislab won an award at TDC 2014.
  • Garalda (2016). A totally new Garamond with a lot of personality that was inspired by the Garamond Ollière (1914) cut by Maurice Ollière. The roman introduces angular elements, while the gorgeous italic is quite smooth and clean. The serifs on f, h, i, k, l, m, n, p, q and r are square.
  • The daring attention-grabbing sturdy slab serif typeface Molto (2018, Type Together). Earler, this was called Miniad (2015).
  • Ciabatta (2019). A great food packaging / "creamy" script in five weights, published by Sudtipos. It is based on Xavier's earlier typeface Nougato (2017, Fontstore: no longer available).
  • Khmer School (2017). A Khmer typeface in 7 fonts (including a dotted one) to teach Khmer writing. This family is free.
