 Design Information

 

Designer: Philippe Apeloig, www.apeloig.com
Development: Nouvelle Noire
Year: 2013


The font “Aleph” is drawn from a basic calligraphic system influenced by Roger Excoffon’s “Banco”, designed in 1952. Based on a hand gesture, the disjointed lines recall the tracing of a broad nib pen. The letters, composed of vertical strokes and slight curves, are never fully closed, as if halted mid-stroke. The minimally constructed font has both spontaneity and strength.
Aleph has a sharp, modern look, contrasting with the Old World aspect of calligraphy. It relies on expressive details to create nuance.
