Xavier Dupré (1977) studied graphic design in Paris and calligraphy/type design at the Scriptorium de Toulouse. He began working in 1999 as lettering artist in a Parisian design agency for two years. Since 2001, when he published his first typefaces, he spend much of his time between Europe and Southeast Asia, especially in Cambodia where he drew latin typefaces as well as khmer scripts for local NGOs (Sipar, CKS, Open Institute). His work is also published by FontFont, Émigré, Typofonderie or TypeTogether and some have received awards from the Type Director’s Club of New York or Tokyo. Xavier is collector of vintage movie posters and Art déco illustrated books. In 2016, a book, Xavier Dupré typographical itinerary, published by Zeug, features most of his typefaces with a long interview by Julien Gineste.
