Jean François Porchez shares some of his masterpieces.
Above: Jean François Porchez, screenshot from an overview of custom type he has created, via a small part of the Typofonderie world. The former President of ATypI and founder of Le Typographe, Porchez recently shared a large collection of custom logotypes and lettering on both his own website and his Flickr pages. Take some time to visit this master’s various resources for a strong dose of inspiration.
Above: Jean François Porchez, 1994 (in use until 2005). Each logotype has a brief story behind it, which you can access as you scroll over each example.

A real delight to peruse, use these examples to join our common fight against ‘live-trace’ aesthetics and other crimes against humanity. Typonauten, believe in your hand and your heart!
A thousand thanks to Jean François for sharing a small overview of his work here.
