Typogymnastics and Boogy Paper


Julien Priez was born in Montreuil, France, in 1986, and studied graphic design and type design between 2004 and 2010 at Eugénie Cotton Montreuil and Estienne Paris. After working for three years as a freelance typographer and calligrapher for several agencies, Pierre Di Sciullo, Atelier Chévara (Marge Design today), and Atelier Muësli, he left to work as an employee for Fontyou for two years. His first and original typeface, Mandinor FY, was published in June 2014. He now works as an independent calligrapher, type & graphic designer @boogypaper and teaches for several schools in Paris (ECV, Eugénie Cotton, Duperré, Auguste Renoir…) France. This booklet, printed by Risograph is a stellar example of typexpressionism and printing technography. Savor the faces, then relish the production. See more boogypaper posts here and his type videos here. I’m quite in awe of his talent and imagination. Bravo!
