Constellation Font Family

Constellation is an atypical font family. The project is based on a personal interpretation of the so-called "text" typography and is the outcome of a kind of journey between its multiple expressions. It was developed over the course of one year. The family is composed of four pairs of upright/italic. It is organized into two poles, each with its own design style. This project questions the notion of typographic family and originates around questions about the relationship between the type designer and his production tools, in at a time when they allow a very high degree of precision. The eight styles were developed from the study of different ideas and techniques. Different but not opposed, because the challenge was to form a coherent whole synthesizing the researches. The project was not guided only by the technique and the study of the history of typography but also by the pursuit of its poetic dimension in order to highlight the concrete visuality of the letter. The notion of constellation as a subjective whole is then decisive in forming and interpreting this family.
