ABOUT







Sylvain Mazas

Born in 1980 in Chambéry, France, he studied at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee in 2007, and has been working in Berlin since then, first for seven years as a type designer at LucasFonts, where he specialized in Arabic type, and then as a graphic designer at the Mückenschwein Publishing House, and as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Personal site.

His typefaces: Ostbahnhof (2016, a blackletter-inspired headline font), Paula (2016, based on the hand of comic book artist Paula Bulling), Bikini (2010, fatty poster face), Skizzenfont (2009), Palast Black (2008, ultra fat), Pestorino (2008). He also did a great typographic job in his Foch Flyer (2010) and Mückenschwein logo (2008).

Arapix12 (2012) is a Latin-Arabic pixel font with very special capabilities: every Latin and Arabic glyphs are designed within just 12 pixels, which is especially reduced for fitting Arabic extended ascenders and descenders. Retails as 29LT Arapix.
