ABOUT







Plomb Type [Max Esnée]

Graduate of the EPSAA in Ivry-sur-Seine, class of 2014, and the postgraduate program at ESAD Amiens, class of 2021. Graphic designer in Paris who set up Plomb Type. His typefaces:

  • The humanist sans-serif typeface Savate (2015) which was inspired by hand-lettering in Paris. Free downloads of Savate at Velvetyne and Open Font Library.
  • In 2019, he designed the free sans typeface Petite France.
  • His graduation typeface at ESAD Amiens in 2021 was Formaat, a multiscript Hebrew & Latin system designed for news websites. Its aim is to provide a comprehensive range of typefaces for the requirements of online news media. For that purpose, Formaat comes in three differents ranges of styles, each corresponding to a specific use: Text, Headline and Sans, comprising 11 styles in total. Formaat Text is designed for continuous reading. The Latin takes inspiration from French and Dutch baroque typefaces such as those of Jean Jannon or Johann Michael Fleischmann. It has relatively low contrast and classical proportions, with marked ascenders and descenders. The Hebrew is based on traditional letterforms and informed by calligraphic practice, with a sharp treatment of outlines.
