With an extensive background that includes working with Hoefler & Frere-Jones and the Oxford University Press, Malou Verlomme brings a decade of design experience to Monotype’s custom type collaborations.
Verlomme studied graphic design at the École Supérieure d'Arts Appliqués Duperré in Paris, before earning a masters with distinction in typeface design at Reading University in 2005. He’s worked on various projects for a range of clients – which has seen him collaborate with major names in the type world – and is a regular speaker at conferences. In addition to designing his own award-winning typefaces, Verlomme has led workshops and taught aspiring designers in Paris. Working with Transport for London, Verlomme was part of the Monotype team that remastered the 100-year-old Johnston typeface
“Obviously it was quite tricky reworking this typeface, because it has such a deep and emotional relationship with the public, and with designers. So I hope that it will be seen as something both fairly new and, at the same time, respectful of the original intentions.”
