The graphic design studio founded by Ralph and Jennifer du Carrois soon developed into a type design studio after an extensive corporate type assignment 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. His most famous project is perhaps Fira Sans for Mozilla, which he developed together with Erik Spiekermann and his team. In 2017, Ralph and his long-time colleague Anja Meiners set up bBox Type, a joint type foundry.

Born in Allgäu, Germany, the graduate Product Designer now devotes more and more of his spare time to both his actual field of study and to his art. An example of his artwork is Time Is A Square, an abstract and experimental time display. However, he doesn’t have that much spare time, as the Carrois family are escaping the hustle and bustle of Berlin to build an eco house in Brandenburg.
