ecal typefaces project

With this website initiated with Swiss Typefaces, ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne is probably the first university in the world to have launched an online type foundry, allowing direct access for anyone to a selection of typefaces, all designed by students.

Fonts designed by students from the Bachelor Graphic Design and Master Art Direction courses are regularly used for ECAL corporate communications (posters, invitations cards, catalogues…), and because of this usage, people often ask to us how to acquire these typefaces, in particular our Headline Fonts.

All fonts presented on their website were designed by ECAL students during their studies and are coded, generated and tested in the same manner as you would expect from any other major type foundry.
