|  Overview  |

Erik Satie, a pianist and penman.

Named after Satie’s Enfantines, this typeface is my very first attempt in type design, seeking to reify the eerie elegance that I perceive in his music and his “childish” handwriting. With both sharp corners and flowy curves, Enfantin spotlights eccentricity and attitudes while holding a Degas’ ballerina posture. Enfantin is born to be an angular yet graceful solitary, an absurd gymnopedist.

Visual research also includes Art Nouveau typography and paintings.
