ABOUT







Yassin Baggar

Yassin Baggar (b. 1985, Switzerland) studied graphic design at School of Applied Arts, La Chaux-de-Fonds and MA in type design from the TypeMedia, KABK, in The Hague. Since 2007, he worked freelance on identities, books and other printed matters for various studios in Switzerland and Berlin. Before joining TypeMedia KABK (where he obtained a Masters in 2011), he worked for different studios in Berlin.

A collaboration with Anton Koovit on custom typefaces for GQ France led in 2012 to the founding of Fatype, a digital type foundry for retail and custom typefaces.

Codesigner with Anton Koovit of the slab serif family Arvo (2010). His graduation work at KABK included the development of Bois (2011): Bois is a Roman Antiqua flirting with Gothic influences. The design, based on calligraphy and craftsmanship, was inspired by the works of Villu Toots, Rudolf Koch, Oldrich Menhart, and William Morris. The name Bois, French for wood, stands for the natural and solid aspect of the typeface.

In 2012, he created the custom typeface family Derzeit for Derzeit, the Berlin Fashion Week Daily. It was designed in collaboration with art director Manuel Schibli.

Yassin designed the high-contrast Peignotian sans family Beausite Fit and Beausite Grand in 2014 at Fatype. It comes with subfamilies called Grotesk, Grand and Slick, and has fashion mag appeal. Beausite Classic is a more standard sans. Between 2014 and 2018, with the help of Anton Koovit and Selina Bernet, it grew to 56 styles.
