ABOUT







Brigitte Schuster

Brigitte Schuster is a graphic designer, calligrapher and lettering artist who graduated in 2008 from Concordia University in Montreal (only one block away from Luc's house...). She wrote about herself: I am an independent Art Director (Graphic Design), Print Artist and Photographer practicing in Montreal, Canada. I am currently teaching typography and photography courses in the Graphic Design department of a college in Montreal. After attending a three-year graphic design program in Munich, Germany, I spent a few years working there both as an employee for print and web agencies, and as a freelancer. In 2005, I completed a Bachelor in Fine Arts, with a specialization in painting from the Italian Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara, Italy. [...] I moved to Canada in 2005 where I continued working in and for the graphic design industry. In 2008 I completed the Graduate Certificate in Digital Technologies in Design Art Practice at Montreal's Concordia University. In my graphic design practice I ideally work in editorial design, also corporate branding, with a focus on typography. Over the last year or two, I developed a great interest in type, which I express in my calligraphy and lettering work and type design research. Graduate of the Masters program in type design at KABK, 2010. Author of Brush calligraphy with a tree branch (2009) and Book Designers from the Netherlands (2014). In 2013, she founded the imprint Brigitte Schuster Editeur. Presently, she lives and works in Bern, Switzerland.

Her typefaces:

  • Canella (2010): a book ad magazine family with the angular necessities required for small print. Part of her Masters project at KABK.
  • Life Sans (2008).
  • A revival of Monotype Plantin (2010).
  • Cardamon (2015 Linotype). Cardamon is an old style serif design with large x-height and a sturdy look. Its proportions are inspired by 16th century punch-cutters Hendrik van den Keere and Robert Granjon.
