The typographer is a little beetle which lives under the bark of spruce trees, creating a dedal of turning galleries that look like lines of scripture.
It begins with the Beaux-Arts University
Cédric Chauvelot, former fine arts student in France, passionate about typography, made this little insect the emblem of his company and brand.
Workshop and boutique together
In 2007, he opened a workshop-boutique in Brussels with a first typographic press and printed projects with lead and wood alphabets, in a constant concern for quality and typographic purism. He decided to create his own stationery collection and to present it at an international show. The professionals who discovered this brand were seduced and the activity grew. The team is setting up in the heart of the Châtelain district in premises grouping a boutique, a typographic workshop containing 800 cases of mobile lead characters and 6 Heidelberg presses as well as a workshop for designing and shaping , for stock and offices.
