Mayenne Sans


Mayenne Sans is a custom typeface designed with an art direction by Atelier Julian Legendre for the department of the Mayenne, in the northwest France.

To renew the brand image of the department, Atelier Julian Legendre asked me to draw a display font with my existing typeface NaN Jaune as a starting point. To distinguish this new font from Jaune, it has been chosen to have big apertures and rounder curves. The resulting typeface is friendlier and conveys the messages of the territory. Like its source, Mayenne Sans as a tremendous x-height with super short ascenders and descenders, allowing tight leading and making it useful for compact heading paragraphs.

Mayenne Sans is not publicly available anymore, prefer it its big sister NaN Jaune.
