Choreographer: Pierre Droulers, Charleroi Danse [Brussels, Belgium]
Project for: Pierre Droulers, Charleroi Danse, 2017 | In collaboration with: Ousseynou Salla (graphic design) | Custom typeface: Droulers, 2 styles
We drew a small custom typeface family for the book Pierre Droulers choreographer: Sunday, in collaboration with Ousseynou Salla. This typeface was designed for a book spanning the life and work of the dancer and choreographer Pierre Droulers. The typeface draws upon printed matter found in Droulers’ personal archive and in particular some typewritten notes. Exploring both the specific rythm and shapes of typewriter alphabets, the design is inspired by the distortions and accidents generated by this technology: letters obstructed by ink, closing counterforms, and so on.
