Faire is a bi-monthly publication dedicated to graphic design. Produced by designers Sacha Léopold and François Havegeer as studio Syndicat, Revue Faire is aimed at students as well as researchers and professional designers. Each issue addresses a specific object or theme and is written by a renowned author.
This issue of Revue Faire focuses the Swiss type foundry Lineto and is written by Olivier Lebrun. For Lineto, the Specimen plays out through forms and formats in order to promote the foundry’s typefaces: books, posters, envelopes, pamphlets, letter transfers, print ads, and video clips as well as inflatable structures and bootlegs of logotypes. When Reala published LL Biff in 2000, the specimen employed graffiti culture and its modes of distribution, along with a combination of two references: “Medium is the message”, “Style is the message”. For Lineto the citation is a form that allows them to distribute their typographic catalogue while promoting diverse cultural fields: “Ignorance of your own culture is not considered cool!”
