Guyot Headline Font Family
Guyot is a type family inspired by the work of the punchcutter François Guyot, who lived and worked in Antwerp during the sixteenth century. Ramiro Espinoza got acquainted with the work of Guyot while attending the Expert Class in Type Design at Antwerp’s Plantin Institute for Typography. Researching French and Flemish punchcutters, Espinoza soon realized that the work of the most important masters of the period had already been digitized. However, he found the work of lesser-known punchcutters like Guyot, though perhaps not of the same superior quality as the others, equally compelling. And so a digital Guyot seemed in order.
