ACL Ébène, custom type family, 3 styles

Atelier Champs Libres is a carpenter company based in Paris and when its identity was redesigned by Le Combo I was commissioned to draw a logotype and develop it into a display type family. The idea was to propose something solid and constructed. The odd sort-of-unicase relation between upper and lowercases transforms each word into a visually strong and consistant element.

The structures are mostly inspired by classic geometric sans-serif typefaces, but some letters carry the mark of their manufacture in details that gives the family its peculiarity.
