Malika Favre is a French artist/illustrator based in London. Her 2015 website was designed and developed by Guy Moorhouse, who said this about the type choice:
We tried out a number of fonts including Harmonia Sans, Aperçu and Verlag, before settling on Brown by Lineto. We wanted something with clear, simple lines that mirrored Malika’s artwork.
All fonts were demoed in situ in a browser so we could accurately see how they rendered and I could adjust the kerning (well letter-spacing) and line heights accordingly. You just don’t get an accurate translation from things like Photoshop and Sketch to web.
