Akatre is a studio that really excels when it comes to typography. We last featured a 924-page book of post-grunge type design from the Paris-based studio founded by Valentin Abad, Julien Divert and Sébastien Riveron in 2007. Recently, Akatre has produced the 15/16 seasonal programmes for two French theatres, TU Nantes and L’Onde Theatre. The former, for the university theatre in Nantes, shows off the studio’s flair for wrinkled, expressive typography that almost looks like it’s underwater, while its programme for L’Onde in Vélizy-Villacoublay, which balances grotesque and modernist-inspired characters, is bold and heavy with slight quirks, like flat-topped "m"s and "n"s, and angled embellishments.
