Experimental type designer Benoît Bodhuin has already earned a reputation for creating bold font families that shake up the status quo of legibility, formality and structural consistency, instead opting for marks that provoke a reaction in their reader and transform the rhythm of reading itself. He’s already produced two faces that we’ve proudly featured on the site, Marriane and ZIGZAG, and his third moves on apace from the last, experimenting further with broken lines and oversized pixels in place of smooth curves and clean lines.
“Mineral is glittering writing fractured into multiple tetragonal splinters, rectangular modules slightly spaced, like quartz and pixels,” says Benoît, which we think describes the font nicely. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating and in its short life Mineral has already been picked up and used in creative applications, from event signage at a graphic design school to a web doc about co-working. Success all round!
