Julien Hébert says he chose Guillon as the principal typeface for this year’s conference because it was developed in Montréal by the very talented Feed Studio and Coppers and Brasses. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Montréal’s Expo 67, Guillon pays homage to the mid-century modernist grotesque, and is perfectly suited to the very heteroclite applications to come.
Julien Hébert: “The A17Mtl mark was created from scratch and meant to reflect this year’s theme: Atypique (atypical in French). I had fun with ink traps, making the mark look good at all sizes, as well as geometry, creating very satisfying alignments and fitting the mark in a perfect square.”
“Frauen Roman and Script share a common weight, x-height, and nib angle, and when used together behave as if the same unabashedly German calligrapher penned them both in the same sitting.” — SharpType
