ABOUT







Alex Chavot

Lyon and/or Paris, France-based graphic designer and illustrator. He created the geometric fat counterless Tangoes and the monoline sans faceSlim in 2009.

Aka UnderNoControlTypofoundry.

Creations in 2012 include the free font Modul (OFL), Lavoir (OFL, based on an old art-deco public bath sign in Lyon), Interval (OFL, monospaced) and Modulo (OFL).

In 2016, he designed the delightful fat sans display typeface Marsel Black, and writes: What could have happened if Roger Excoffon and Eric Gill gathered in Marcel Olive's backyard in Marseille to share a few Pastis back in the days? In some way, Marsel could be the result of this hypothetical experiment. A colourful fat sans with uncanny high contrasts and utter personality. While flirting with the strangeness of Gill's Kayo, Marsel primarily stands as a very distant hommage to Excoffon's mythical Antique, a reminiscence of a Latin taste for exuberance.
