Laurène Girbal.
Type Designer

In her words.

I see each typeface as a little miracle considering all the milestones it has represented — a lot of effort, patience and challenges along the way for the completion of a working system ready to express someone else’s voice.

Laurène Girbal is a Type designer at Monotype with a soft spot for scripts and logotypes. After her education in graphic design and her type design specialization at EsadType, she worked as a freelance designer before joining Colophon Foundry.

Over the years, she has developed custom and retail typefaces as well as logotypes for a wide range of businesses, from small, independent clients to major international firms. As a letters enthusiast, she enjoys pushing herself with unusual and thought-provoking projects.
