Coppers and Brasses

Communication Arts features Coppers and Brasses, the Montréal studio of TypeMedia alums Étienne Aubert Bonn (TM2012) and Alexandre Saumier Demers (TM2013).

What drew us to study type design in the Netherlands is the way Dutch letterers see type as shapes created by a tool—thinking mainly about Gerrit Noordzij’s work—and their studies on how pressure, rotation, angles and tools all influence the resulting letterform.

The TypeMedia studio is getting a lick of paint this summer and some other much needed revisions. An improved kitchen. More power outlets. Fewer cables hanging from the ceiling. Sunscreens. We’re looking forward to the next academic year!
