Deslis Frère, also called Deslis Fr, is a multiform type family forming
a link between humanistic drawing and contemporary details. The project
is inspired from two phonebooks printed by my grand-grand-father.
The range of typefaces used in these phonebooks is incredibly diverse
and each of them has peculiarities. The type is composed of 5 different styles in order to create a rich type variety.
The overall tone of the family is referencing the printed ads dating back
to the beginning of the XXth century. Deslis Frère is the name of my grand-grand-father’s print shop. Beyond the aesthetic this project is an exploration on my own family legacy.
The printed specimen designed for this typeface.
