The graphic design studio, Carrois, was founded by Ralph and Jennifer du Carrois and it soon developed into a type design studio following an extensive corporate type project that they did for Suzuki.

Ralph made a name for himself with international clients such as de Gruyter, zdf, Cisco, Bosch, TERN, Autodesk and Monotype by extending and designing fonts. One of his most extensive projects was Fira Sans for Mozilla, which he developed together with Erik Spiekermann, Anja Meiners and team as well as the extended FiraGo design for the geo provider ‘here’.

With his foundry bBox Type, Ralph serves customers and clients of various sizes from different business areas. bBox has realized projects for zdf, cewe, here, de Gruyter, Mozilla, Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin, Autodesk, Erik Spiekermann, Cisco, Bosch, SWR, the City of Rome and many more.

Born in Allgäu, Germany, Ralph originally studied as a Product Designer and today he still devotes his spare time to both his actual field of study and to art. When he left the hustle and bustle of Berlin, new spaces and perspectives opened up for him and his family in his new home of Potsdam. Today, he lives and works there in a wooden house, which he designed himself.
