Stencil Typeface, Semibold
(More weights on the way)
Since graduating from college, I’ve sketched on subway commutes in New York, Chicago, and Paris. Paris was the city in which I began to pursue my career as a designer, and the Metro was the underground city which guided me, from day to day (“au jour le jour”). Aujour is my contemporary iteration of the lettres à jour(1) of the Metro.
1 The French term “lettres à jour” (letters through which you see the daylight) describes not only the form of a stencil, but also its most basic function of communication with no-nonsense clarity.
Glyph Set - Uppercase
Glyph Set - lowercase
Tiled - experimental typeface
This typeface was based on the tiles I found in New York City - subway tiles, tiles of hotel lobby floors, old bakeries, etc.
