About us

Our graphic design studio tackles visual identities, editorial design and type design, for private and cultural clients or within the framework of self-initiated projects. We use our expertise to engage with various thematic and geographical environments while always being receptive to their specific contingencies. We like to share and pass on our methodology through exhibitions and talks, workshops, teaching and examining boards. Julia Joffre, Yoann Minet et Camille Prandi met while studying at the École Estienne in Paris, and founded Bureau Brut in 2015.

 

Portfolio

Our practice is driven by an insatiable curiosity, a total commitment to every project, and a keen understanding of strategic goals and situations. Our creative process brings together the building of typographic tools, the art direction of visual material and an exacting attitude towards implementation. Our work reveals the inner truth of a design project: the brief and its context.

 

Retail typefaces

These are original and exclusive designs that display Bureau Brut’s taste and demanding attitude. Some were originally designed as custom typefaces, others were born from personal research, but all of them are waiting for you to reach out towards new horizons. Others come from the need for an efficient, straightforward typographic tool and aim at becoming the partners you can always rely on in your day-to-day practice. Lastly, graphic design is an inherently social endeavour that provides us with many opportunities to collaborate with highly talented individuals. Why not take advantage of it? Some of typefaces are testament to these fortuitous or intentional encounters.
