ABOUT







Blondina Elms Pastel

Blondina lived and worked in Martinique, France for eight years. She graduated in 1999 from Insitut régional d'art visuel de la Martinique (IRAVM). Blondina founded Atelier Elms in Cave Hill, Barbados, in 2002. Her clients can be found in the United States, the British Virgin Islands, Martinique, Dominica and Barbados. She returned to settle in Barbados in November 2003. Graduate of the University of Reading in 2011. Her graduation typeface there was Naej (2011), a typeface family for recreational children's storybooks. Lively and bouncy, it blends script and sans into a refreshing breakfast. She calls the family calligraphic and neohumanist. Blondina finally published Naej in 2012 at a German foundry, URW.

In 2013, she graduated from the Plantin Institute's type design program under Frank E. Blokland. Her graduation typeface there was the children's storybook font Calina. At Plantin, she also attempted a Jacques Francois rosart revival.

She writes that for Google Fonts, she developed Dinah (for Latin and Devanagari), but there is no record of that at Google Fonts.

Custom fonts by Blondina include Barefoot (for bare Greetings greeting cards)

Presently, she is a PhD student at the Aix-Marseille University, and is based in Aix-en-Provence. Since 2015, she organizes Typote, mobile workshops for training in calligraphy, lettering, typeface design and graphic design.
