Standard Type Specimen / Benoît Bodhuin
A grid-inspired typeface, designed in Standard (6 weights) and Pickle Standard (3 styles).
The first drafts of the typeface were based on a grid with guidance from architect Nicolas Gautron. The typefaces are drawn to obey and emancipate the grid at the same time, striving for an elegant balance between the straight lines, which adhere to the grid, and the curves that offer an irregular personality.
"Both typefaces feature wonderfully quirky latin glyphs, maze-like... [with] even distribution between straight lines and curves.” —Jyni Ong, It's Nice That
