Our ‘At Work With’ series takes a peek behind the scenes of our FontFont designers at work. For the first in our

series, we visited Ralph du Carrois who worked on the Cyrillic and Greek character sets for one of our most popular FontFonts, FF Meta Serif. Working alongside Botio Nikoltchev, Ralph also contributed to the Extra Bold and Light weights of FF Meta Serif. Ralph’s studio Carrois Type Design is located very close to the Ostkreuz S-Bahn station in Berlin. A live/work arrangement set over three floors, his space is a visual treat with exposed concrete and a treasure trove of type treats.
