Cédric Chauvelot, former fine arts student of Besançon, France, passionate about typography, made this little insect the emblem of his company and brand.
In 2009, he opened a workshop-boutique in Brussels with a first typographic press and printed projects with lead and wood alphabets, in a constant concern for quality and typographic purism. He decided to create his own stationery collection and to present it at an international show. The professionals who discovered this brand were seduced and the activity grew.
Today, Le Typographe collections can be found in more than 600 boutiques, stationery and concept stores around the world. Le Typographe counts eight people. All products are designed and manufactured by hand in an artisanal way in the Brussels workshop:
+ Impressions are made on the brand's Heidelberg printing presses.
+ Their typographic studio includes nearly eight hundred drawers of lead letters.
+ Shaping is entirely hand-crafted in the Le Typographe workshop in Brussels.
