We are delighted to announce the result of this years TypeTogether's Publishing Incentive Programme. The young and very talented Roxane Gataud convinced our selection team with her project, Bely, which was conceived during her recent postgraduate course at the Ésad, Amiens, France.
So far, Bely, which she optimised for editorial use, comprises of text and display variants, and includes support for Cyrillic. Roxane says that she drew inspiration from Dwiggins's design-principles and the classical proportions of Garamond, to create a highly legible typeface with a pleasant colour and texture. This makes it a perfect fit for TypeTogether's growing library.
