ABOUT







Phantom Foundry [Jean-Baptiste Morizot]

Type designer at the open source type foundry Velvetyne in Paris. His creations there include Trickster (2017: blackletter), Bluu Next (2014, a free wedge serif typeface) and Steps Mono (with Raphael Bastide).

In 2015, he switched to the commmercial camp, and cooperated with the Fontyou team in the production of the didone typeface family Télémaque FY, which brings Didot in its most rigid and tuxedoed manner, for the black-and-white fashion mags showing James Bond with a black bowtie and spotless high-contrast shirt.

In 2016, Alisa Nowak, Julie Soudanne and Jean-Baptiste Morizot co-designed Graphico (Indian Type Foundry): Its letterforms are industrial and square-sided. The typeface looks like the product of precision mechanics: it should be featured together with tech---either old tech like appliances or watches, or new tech like apps and laptop stands. Still for Indian Type Foundry in 2016, he designed the hipster sans typeface family Bobo---perhaps one of the greatest hipster typefaces of all times. Bobo stands for bourgeois Bohemian---I am not sure it is identical to gauche caviar, but that is the societal class the author of this typographic encyclopedia belongs to.

In 2016, Morizot designed the high contrast wedge serif newspaper typeface families Editor and Editor Condensed, and the car license plate font License at Indian Type Foundry.

In 2017, as part of the new Black Foundry, he extended his free font Bluu and even added a variable font to the set, as well as a collection of emojis. The new name is Bluusuuperstar: Bluu Suuperstar is a brutalist serif typeface featuring very prominent triangular-wedges for serifs and terminals. Bluu Suuperstar's letters have a tall x-height, and the diamond dots are a chief characteristic of the design. Notches like these [diamonds] are found in several blackletter designs; but most-famously in the romain du roi created for Louis XIV. Nothing in Bluu Suuperstar is soft or cuddly; this is a sharp typeface, and you could cut yourself on its letters. The separate emoji font, designed by Gaëtan Baehr, is wittily named Bluumoji, and it includes 73 glyphs.

In 2018, Morizot set up Phantom Foundry, where he published Super Fat Bob (2018) and Phantom Sans (2018: trying to bring some warmth to the geometric sans genre, and now also a variable typeface).

Typefaces from 2019: Cosmetic (Indian Type Foundry: a high-contrast fashion mag sans family), TXT25 (an unconventional extreme-axis (variable) text typeface).

Typefaces from 2020: Token (at Future Fonts---on purpose, Morizot mixes discordant styles to create a Frankenstein monster of a typeface), Kola (a molecular rounded stencil typeface published at Indian Type Foundry), Claire (with Alisa Nowak, Jérémie Hornus and Gaetan Baehr: a 12-style bracketed serif newspaper type with small x-height in the mold of late-nineteenth century typefaces along the Century model).
