For Loris Olivier, typography is a small splash of color in the palette with which we paint our future.
This defining principle has unleashed an enviable talent for trends and experimental type design in the Swiss Designer. He proves this among others, at lo-ol type, a type studio that he runs with his wife Noheul Lee. So far, under this label he has published very different families, for instance Ortank, Superheat and Oni. The philosophizing designer still has enough designs for ten libraries up his sleeves.
Before he obtained his TypeMedia Masters in Type Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, he studied Art Direction at the ÉCAL in Lausanne. His passion for letter shapes was ignited in 2009 during a calligraphy course with Claude Dieterich in San Francisco. He demonstrates his skills every day as Head of Product Design at EPFL Blue Brain Project.
Loris likes to leave his comfort zone of UI/UX, brand, graphic and type design by working on a project with a friend using CNC controls to cut wood.
