Production Type celebrates 5 years of experimentation through the exhibition SIGNALS

Author: Slanted editors

Production Type, the digital type design agency founded by Jean-Baptiste Levée in 2014, celebrates its fifth anniversary with an exhibition and several publications which underline the craft’s contemporaneity and its anchoring in the current design landscape. For Jean-Baptiste Levée, design is first and foremost about creating a social link.

With a yearly habit of gathering friends, collaborators, clients, contributors and typophiles around a new typeface or a new publication, this time he blends it all around 5 years of adventure, creation and collaboration in a place which welcome the team’s state of mind: Le Floréal Belleville. SIGNALS regroups the first monographic exhibition of the foundry as well as the presentation of Julien Lelièvre’s Art d’autoroute photographic project, in a single place.

Exhibition in co-production with Maison de la Culture Amiens, within the frame of their 2020 collaboration.
