On February the 14th, Velvetyne Type Foundry was invited to give a type design workshop at the Fig. Festival in Liège, Belgium. The goal of the workshop was to learn the basics of type design on the computer, specially vector tracing, spacing and kerning. Thanks for the organizers and for the participants who valliantly tackled such technical matters without even flinching!
For the tracing part of the workshop, a new typeface was created. It’s called Brassia (like Brussels, Brasseurs and a botanical genus of orchids), and it’s now available for everyone. You can now download it, modify it and use it freely in your personal and commercial projects. If you use it, please mention Velvetyne Type Foundry and its author (Ariel Martín Pérez) somewhere in the credits. Cheers!
For the release of his last typeface, Trickster, its designer Jean-Baptiste Morizot asked 13 different designers to create unique posters. These posters were shown during the release party at la Générale on the 27th of November, 2017.
Each poster is for sale at a very limited edition of 2 copies, A1 format, 40 € port included. Drop us an email if you are interested before there are no more.

WE’RE PLEASED TO WELCOME 2 NEW TYPEFACES:
TRICKSTER & HYPER SCRYPT
If you are in Paris next Monday, come to La Générale from 18:00 to 23:00 for a double release party. We’ll launch Trickster, a typeface by Jean-Baptiste Morizot who also created the well known Bluu, and Hyper Scrypt, a typeface from Jérémy Landes, designer of the Solide Mirage.
This double release party will take the form
of a double exhibition!
Hyper Chapelle is an exhibition by AAAAA Atelier whom, inspired by the stained glass of the Metz Cathedral, created a futuristic and psychedelic utopian pop communication. AAAAA Atelier commissioned Jérémy Landes to develop The Hyper Scrypt Typeface for this exhibition. Hyper Chapelle took place at the end of last summer in Tata Gallery in Metz, discover it for the first time in Paris next week.
For the launch of Trickster we asked a fine selection of contemporary graphic designers / studio to express their own vision of this new font via the creation of a poster.
