The Coline typeface in use in the programme of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs of Paris for January to April 2015, designed by Atelier Anette Lenz. The whole family is here: Coline Première, Coline Cursive and Coline Extrême, in various weights.
Coline has been chosen to enter the collections of the French CNAP(Centre National des Arts Plastiques). To celebrate this good news, let’s dive into the work process that lead to the creation of Coline family.
The “C’est pas mon genre! About women: design from France” exhibition shows the emergent trends of french contemporary design and question the complex and various links between design and women. The graphic designer Lionel Catelan has designed its catalogue in 172 pages, using Jaakko AND the seven members of Coline family all together in a lively dialogue.
My friends at “Building Paris” were commissioned to design a stone for the Foundation Stone Laying ceremony of the urban planning around Évreux’s Cathedral (a Roman cathedral and national monument of France, in Normandy) by h2o architectes, together with Michel Desvigne landscape designer. They designed three stones set in Coline. The first stone is the latin and french sentence “here & now”, the second one gives the geographical coordinates, and the last one is a compass rose. All of it was rock-carved by a skilled craftsman.
All the seven members of Coline family appear in this special issue of the french cultural magazine Télérama, following an exhibition at the Grand Palais, Paris.
The Coline family won the Type Design Prize of the Tokyo Type Directors Club 2011. Happiness.
