Available now: Apeloig Type Library

Today Nouvelle Noire has published the “Apeloig Type Library” which is a
compilation of ten typefaces created by the french designer Philippe Apeloig.

Through this library, Apeloig’s distinctive approach to letters and type is made visible.
Apeloig conceives the process of type design as a research and play between legibility
and forms. His designs are defeating legibility but remain accessible for the viewer.
A rich typographic expression and an impressive variety of shapes have emerged from
his creations.

Originating from orders of posters, book covers or corporate and visual identities,
those fonts came to life first as a few letters designed especially for the project.
For Philippe Apeloig, Nouvelle Noire has undertaken the development of typefaces
from those several existing letters. In the past two years, Nouvelle Noire developed
the designs into ten full working fonts.

All library fonts support a wide range of western European languages. 
Opentype features are embedded, in each font, depending on the characteristics of the typeface.

On the occasion of the Philippe Apeloig exhibition “TYPORAMA” at the Musée des
Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the "Apeloig Type Library" will be presented.

The exhibition “TYPORAMA” will be open from 21 st November 2013 to 30 th March 2014.
