ABOUT







Noël Leu

Noël Leu is one of the cofounders of Grilli in Bern (while studying at the University of the Arts Bern in Visual Communication and Literature Writing). Leu designed GT Walsheim (2009) based on the Walsheim Neger poster by Swiss poster designer Otto Baumberger (1889-1961). It is a stunning geometric grotesk with a bouquet of art deco. Thierry Blancpain dedicated a page to Baumberger and GT Walsheim, and points out that for the Cyrillic portion, Noël Leu was assisted by Mirco Schiavone.

In 2014, Dominic Huber, Marc Kappeler and Noel Leu published the extensive text family GT Sectra (Grilli Type), which, in view if its breadth and angular design will prove to be one the world's major releases of 2014. GT Sectra won first prize in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition. Their blurb: GT Sectra was originally designed for the German-language magazine Reportagen, a bi-monthly publication specializing in literary reporting. Its long-form stories require a typeface that works well in text, but not at the expense of character. GT Sectra strikes that balance.

In 2016, Seb McLauchlan and Noel Leu co-designed GT America at Grilli Type. They write: GT America builds a bridge between the American Gothic and European Grotesque typeface genres. It combines design features from both traditions and unites them in a contemporary family. The versatile system consists of eighty-four styles across six widths and seven weights. It has tapered stems and subtly angled spurs, and a very useful monospaced GT America Mono subfamily.

In 2018, Leu published GT Super (Text and Display), a typeface family steeped in the exaggerations and formal contrasts of the 1980s.

In 2021, Noël Leu released GT Ultra, a variable font that features both a generic sans and a generic (sharp) serif typeface family. It has three axes: weight, italic angle, and contrast.
