Practice Makes Perfect

François Rappo’s latest project is a significant outcome of his design practice anchored in the research of typographic paradigms. In the mapping of serif typography, Practice introduces a new perspective with an unprecedented sharpness.


While its architecture revisits the elegance of Renaissance typography, an innovative calligraphic drawing was achieved to reach a crisp digital identity. The precise texture of Practice is outstanding on both paper and screen. The optical balance of the text rythm offers a clear reading with a contemporary aesthetic.


Practice is declined in a consistent gradient of styles to provide a complete tool for magazines, books and newspapers. The family is structured in three display weights designed for larger sizes and six roman weights for smaller sizes plus their matching italics. Each style offers five series of numerals, small caps and an extended ligature set.
