  • Musée d’Orsay

The Musée d’Orsay wanted, in 2010, to renew its typography, returning to the typeface defined in its original visual identity, developed by Bruno Monguzzi and Jean Widmer (1986). The museum will was to update Walbaum, cut by Justus Erich Walbaum (around 1830), then unique typographic voice of the institution. With Philippe Millot, we defined a family of «cousins» of Walbaum, in styles that appeared later in the 19th century. For text typefaces, a Grotesk (sans serif and bold), and a Typewriter (slab serifs, low contrast, and light). For display typefaces, the uppercase present variations of texture in the manner of 19th century display type. Unfortunately, the Museum barely used this new typeface system.

  • Park MGM × be pôles

Park MGM is the new name of the famous Hotel Montecarlo, on the Las Vegas Strip (Nevada). It is owned by the Hollywood studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The agency be-poles (Paris / New York) commissioned me to design the exclusive typeface of the hotel, Alder, used for its interior and exterior signage, and all of its communication.
Rather than the excessive and often caricatured image of the hotels in the city, the visual identity of the Park MGM chooses elegance, with a very refined interior design. Likewise, Alder is inspired by the proportions of classic Roman capitals, with a more contemporary design. It comes in 4 weights : Regular, Bold, Italic and Condensed. Exclusive use

  • Garaje Hangar 23

Hangar 23 is a theater in Rouen, in western France. Its programming offers a very broad spectrum, from theater to dance, and from circus to world music. To illustrate this variety, but also the context of the Hangar surrounded by the port and containers, I created a monospace version of Garaje 0703 Black, with many alternates, which color the message differently.

La Coursive is a structure based in Dijon which supports companies in the cultural and creative industries. It is located in a singular building, where passageways, between the floors, give access to the apartments located above and below. To illustrate both this principle, the facade of the building, but also the circulation of knowledge and skills within this structure, I developed an Inline version of Garaje, where the letters are open and communicate with each other. With the help of Guillaume Delamarche, intern at the studio. Unpublished
