ABOUT







Carrois Type Design [Ralph du Carrois]

Carrois Type Design (Berlin, Germany) started up officially ca. 2010, although Ralph du Carrois has been designing typefaces since ca. 2002. This dynamic company in Germany has three art directors, Jenny du Carrois, Anja Meiners and Botjo Nikoltchev. All three also design typefaces, as well as Adam Twardoch, Andreas Eigendorf and Ralph du Carrois himself. The company specializes in custom type.

Typefaces (a *very* incomplete list, with apologies, but I can't tell from the web site who made what...):

  • Allzweck MvdR (2010-2011), a revival of a sans typeface influenced by Planzkissen by Mies van der Rohe. This was commissioned by Neue Nationalgalerie.
  • The corporate typeface Cisco Sans (2010), which is positioned midway between Helvetica and Akzidenz Grotesk.
  • Fira Sans (2013, for Firefox; with Erik Spiekermann). Google Web Font link. Mozilla download page. Google web Fonts published Fira Sans Condensed and Fira Sans Extra Condensed (2012-2016) in 2017. CTAN link.
  • Krikrikrak and Blumenkohl (2013, children's scripts).
  • PTL Manohara (2010, Primetype: a humanist sans by Botio Nikoltchev), Sadgirl(2006, Primetype), and PTL Maurea (2005, Primetype). Ralph du Carrois made many more fonts at Primetype prior to the establishment of Carrois Type design.
  • Free Google Web Fonts made in 2012: ABeeZee (Anja Meiners: a sans typeface created to help children), Carrois Gothic, Carrois Gothic SC, Finger Paint (brush face).
  • Icon fonts for a number of companies: Bosch (2011), Herzberger Bäckerei (2011), Hybride Iconwelt (2007), Ponce, Russian Rail, Sentres Wettericons, ZDF Nachrichten.
  • Several typefaces were created in cooperation with Erik Spiekermann's group between 2007 and 2012. These include work on Meta Serif Pro (2011), Meta Science (2012: done for De Gruyter, it is based on Meta and Meta serif), FF Meta (2008: some thin italic weights), TERN or Trans European Road Network (2007-2008), ZDF Nachrichten (2009, plus many icons), Lautschrift (2012: a phonetic script done for Erik Spiekermann to add to his Meta and Meta Serif families), and Unit Slab Pro (2009).
  • Inarea Sans (2003) and Inarea (2003-2005).
  • FR Classic (2002). This typeface was used in the redesign of the Frankfurter Rundschau. This didone is based on a reworking of LT Gianotten by Antonio Pace.
  • Two condensed sans typefaces done for the subway system in Rome in 2005. Some icons were also made in that project.
  • Share (2006). A free techno monospaced family made for the TYPO3 Association.
  • An angular grotesk done in 2008 for the Russian Railways. This work was carried out with Dmitri Lavrow, and invloved Andreas Eigendorf and Ralph du Carrois.
  • Suzuki (2006) is a corporate gothic font that replaces Franklin Gothic at Suzuki as house style.

About Ralph du Carrois, b. 1975: He graduated at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe in 2004 with his first typeface family PTL Maurea. Since 2000 he has worked for different companies or agencies. In 2003 he founded the studio seite4 in Berlin with its main focus on type design and corporate identity design.
