Au revoir, Roxane!

March 2023

We bid farewell to Roxane Gataud: designer, friend, and a joy to be with.


Over the 17+ years of TypeTogether history, we’ve had teammates come and go, but few have touched our hearts like the wonderful and talented Roxane Gataud. She initially came to us through her stellar scholarship-winning Bely family and proved to be so skilled, creative, and enjoyable that we brought her on initially as a graphic designer, then as a type designer permanently.


If you’ve followed either Roxane or TypeTogether, you know her amazing type design work. With us she has designed Bely and our Aneto families. She teamed up with Alice Savoie of Frenchtype on Faune and Romain 20, and worked with other type foundries such as Type Factory, Production Type, and Typofonderie. Before announcing her next step, Roxane was continuing on our upcoming Portada Extended family and some secret, custom work which should be released this year.

Roxane’s designs have garnered her several prestigious awards, such as the 2016 Catalyst Award from the Society of Typographic Aficionados, the Type Directors Club award, and others. She continues to create her own type designs and have a balanced life outside of work.
