Blackmoon Foundry (was: La Letteria, or: Anatole Type Foundry) [Elena Albertoni]

Elena Albertoni (Blackmoon Foundry, and before that, La Letteria, and before that, Anatole Type Foundry, est. 2005) is an Italian type designer (b. 1979, Bergamo) who studied at ESAD Amiens and the Ecole Estienne in Paris, before taking a position as type designer at FontFabrik in Berlin, where she still lives. She cofounded Anatole Type Foundry with Pascal Duez. La Letteria is located in Berlin. In 2011, Elena cofounded LetterinBerlin, a studio dedicated to handmade and digital design, with a special focus on lettering and type-design.

At the Rencontres de Lure 2005, she spoke about OpenType and Latin characters.

Her typefaces:

  • The connected script typeface Dolce (2005), which won an award at the TDC2 2005 type competition.
  • Dyna (2009). A connected feminine script. Review of Dolce & Dyna.
  • Kigara.
  • Scritta (connected calligraphic script). Followed by Scritta Nuova (2011): a rhythmic upright connected script, which evokes retro calligraphic styles taught in Italian schools around the 1950s.
  • Helene (squarish face).
  • Valora.
  • Schneider.
  • Gregoria. A Gregorian chant font that won an award at TDC2 2007.
  • Deja Rip and Deja Web (2010). An eight-style sans family of great utility, co-designed with Fred Bordfeld; Cyrillic included.
  • Acuta (2010). An all-purpose type family.
  • Nouvelle Vague (2011). A connected display script along the lines of Mistral.
  • Spinnaker (2011). A sans design based on French and UK lettering found on posters for travel by ship.
  • The plump and curvy script typeface Molle (2012, Google Web Fonts).
  • Kiez (2017, The Blackmoon Foundry).
  • Vidal (2018). A wide sans with low contrast and medium-to-tall ascenders.
  • Coast (2018). An almost monoline sans inspired by enamel signs from the 1920s.
