 Design Information


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

The “Poudre” (or powder) font was created by Apeloig for a poster advertising an exhibition on the prolific inventor/industrialist Alfred Nobel. Apeloig’s concept was inspired by Nobel’s invention of dynamite and work with subatomic particles.
Over a background of overlapping, solid circles – like the spray of an explosion or a grouping of atoms – he lays out the information about the exhibition in a composition modeled after the design of a computer chip.
The Poudre letterforms themselves are composed of large out-of-focus dots in a grid. Like powder, this typography spreads across the page. Within each word or character, the dots’ density can range from heavy, tightly packed dots to smaller, more widely spaced ones, creating an undulating movement across the page. This allows for the accentuation of a letter, a syllable or a word, as desired.
