Delvaux is a Belgian luxury goods company founded in 1829 in Brussels. Base Brussels asked us to design a custom typeface to nourrish the brand’s visual identity. For Delvaux, maintaining a privileged relationship with their customers means writing to them through invites and small stationery accompagnying the purchases. For a tailored experience, we worked closely with the in-house calligrapher and created a script typeface with enough randomness to mimick handwriting while staying practical to use. Through use of ligatures and alternates, and special letterings for the iconic products, the typeface acts just like the real thing.
