Background

Garaje wil be a huge family of a highly-modular sans serif typeface. His first typeface, Thomas Hout-Marchland started designing the first weights in 1999. He was inspired by early XXth modernist typefaces, such as the Bauhaus attempts towards an universal type. This was in mind mind when he moved to Madrid, and discovered the Spanish garages’ vernacular type. Garaje is a mix of both of its influences : a mecanical grid-based typeface, with a hundred weights. Garaje 53 Unicase Black (based on a 5 × 3 grid), the first weight of the family, is available for free here.
