Guillaume Le Méliner

Guillaume Le Méliner is a letterforms explorer and sign designer. His work consists of the creation of sensitive writings and meaningful designs for print and digital media. Overtaking the limits between scriptural and pictural, legible and abstract, he envisages moreabout possible crossroads and links than closed borders of the disciplines, shading the multiple colors of black and light.

“Expressive bodies for the transit of thoughts.”

Guillaume Le Méliner

After studying industrial design and fine art, he had the chance to approach closely latin calligraphy and type design at Le scriptorium de Toulouse in France. Since then, he is developing a personal approach about the art and design of the beautiful writings. More recently he added photography to his production tools revealing the relations that unite his reflexion of the writings of writing
In addition to his activities as a designer and an artist, he is involved in education; teaching history of writing, calligraphy, lettering and typography, giving courses and workshops in graphic design graduate schools and public librairies.
