256tm [Thomas Huot-Marchand]

256tm is the foundry of Besançon-based designer Thomas Huot-Marchand (b. Dole, France, 1977), the creator of typefaces such as the 72-weight Garaje (from Garaje 55 to Garaje 100; Garaje 53 Unicase Black is free) and Minuscule (a ten style family for small print), which won an award at the TDC2 2005 type competition. He studied under Peter Keller at the ANRT in Nancy, and teaches at the École d'Art de Besançon.

In Comedia he writes about legibility and the creation of Miniscule, which was optimized to be read at 2 to 6 points. His research for this at the ANRT was based on the theory of "compact typography" put forth by Emile Javal, a French ophtalmologist who explained his ideas in "Physiologie de la lecture et de l'écriture" (1905). For examples, see here and here. Minuscule and the experimental typeface Minerale (2017) are distributed by 205 Corp.
