ABOUT







Velvetyne Type Foundry (or: VTF) [Frank Adebiaye]

Velvetyne Type Foundry (or VTF) is the French foundry of Parisian Frank Adebiaye (b. 1982, Versailles). It used to be called Velvetyne TypeForgery because he uses FontForge to design all his free fonts, which come complete with FontForge sources. Originally, it had many free fonts by Frank Adebiaye himself. At some point, it became more of a coop, and started publishing experimental typefaces by several contributors and collaborators. These fonts are reported elsewhere on my pages under the names of their designers.

Creator of some free (often experimental) fonts in 2010-2011. Cooperators include Sylvain Henri, Jérémy Landes-Nones, and Sébastien Hayez. Frank's typefaces:

  • Ajonc.
  • Babacar (2012). He calls it an African fractur.
  • Babbage.
  • Backout (2012). He writes about this flared poster all-caps typeface: BackOut is what an African Albertus could be.
  • Barjavel and Barjavel Mono.
