ABOUT







Francesca Bolognini

Graduate of the KABK in Den Haag in 2008. Originally from Italy, she was at Spiekermann Partners in Berlin for two years, working closely with Erik Spiekermann for clients such as Birkhauser, Bosch, Messe Frankfurt, and FontShop. After Den Haag, she moved to London where she works as a graphic and type designer, and worked for Dalton Maag. She created the heavily serifed Kina family as a student at KABK. That was followed by the quite original alphabet Python, the feminine transitional family Duchesse. The last typeface is a revival of this typeface from a French book dating from 1908. About this mysterious face, Hrant Papazian writes: That font looked familiar to me, and I immediately looked at my copies of Audin's books, since that's such a singular repository for funky old French stuff. The roman is shown in figure 125 of volume 3 as "Type Beaudoire" #2 (the #1 is actually even more fascinating). The italic is a few pages down in figure 141, shown as the font "XXe Siècle" by Mayeur. I remember from the time I translated Ponot's article about Perrin that there's a connection between Perrin, Beaudoire and Mayeur (and Marquet). IIRC one of them swiped a design from one other, with the help of another, or something.

In 2011, she and Miles Newlyn created Frank, a 5-style humanist sans family.

In 2017, Francesca Bolognini and Sebastian Losch co-designed the ribbon calligraphy font Volina at Dalton Maag.
