Strike Stroke | Emmanuel Rey, type archives

Back in 2007, ECAL/University of art and design Lausanne published a book of almost 400 pages, illustrating twelve years (1995–2007) of a phenomenal success under the direction of Pierre Keller.

Some of the works, that I did as a student there, were published in it:

“Abert” by Adeline Mollard, “freak” by Vanessa Garcia, “rock” by Clément Gallet, “raskal” by myself and PGM by Philippe Egger. These typefaces were designed during the 3rd year’s type design course, under the supervision of Ian Party (b+p swiss typefaces).
