Hello, my name is Lucas Descroix.
I like to draw shapes and build systems. I make custom and retail typefaces, design books, posters and visual identities. You can sometimes find me working within Le Combo or experimenting alternative tools and organizing workshops with Bonjour Monde.


Want to get in touch? Contact me by Mail, on Instagram or on Twitter, I'd be happy to hear from you!
