We design libre / open source fonts. Learn more and contribute to the adventure of Velvetyne by reading our “about” page.
This workshop took place during the early days of 2016 summer in la Générale in Paris. This workshop was about the fork, the fact of modifying an open-source project. All participants created a different version of the same typeface, Cooper Hewitt, designed by Chester Jenkins for the New York Smithsonian Design Museum. These different typefaces build a new complex family with diverse fonts sharing the same structure and rythm.
