Roxane Gataud (1991) is an independent typeface designer from France. She studied graphic design for four years before enrolling in the 2012 ESAD Type programme in Amiens. There, Roxane designed her first original typeface, Bely, then graduated with honors in 2014. That same year she was awarded TypeTogether’s first Typeface Publishing Incentive Programme (now named Gerard Unger Scholarship), through which Bely was released in January 2016.
The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) awarded Roxane the 2016 Catalyst Award for her current achievements and her promising future in the field of typeface design. Besides working on beloved type families for TypeTogether, she has collaborated with other type designers and foundries such as Typofonderie, 205.TF, Production Type, Typefactory, and Alice Savoie.
Roxane lives in Paris, collecting fruit labels, dinosaur ephemera, and pictures of type in the wild. She joined TypeTogether in 2016 as a type and graphic designer.
