Grace Jones Typeface

 
The Grace Jones is a headline typeface consiststing of two styles: round and square respectively titled Male and Female, based on the androgyny of Grace Jones. Widely used by different designers including Bureau Mirko Borsche where I helped designing the first issue of Super Paper with the typeface. Used by international designers, magazines and agencies such as DWELL (US), GLAMOUR (France), BURDA Verlag and named typeface of the month — “[…] As if the band Kraftwerk would
have interpreted a neo-classical antiqua typeface”.
Hugo also presented his work at Typographische Gesellschaft in Munich (see the video of the presentation below).
 
More background info in the blog (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
Designs for Thomas Azier by Ben Roth, additional Super Paper layouts, ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’ by Bureau Mirko Borsche, spreads from GLAMOUR France, exlusive rework for acclaimed French chef Jean-François Piège’s new autobiography, book designed by Sophie Toporkoff.
The typeface is exclusively available in the shop.
