Background

Wigrum was born in 2011, when Anouk Pennel and Raphaël Daudelin, from Montréal-based design studio Feed, were preparing the book design for Daniel Canty’s latest novel. Canty, a contemporary writer from Québec, writes in Wigrum about a mysterious character who moves at the border between fiction and reality, between Second World War time and present time, between Eastern and Western Europe. In order to typeset the book, Studio Feed created Wigrum, a sans serif with strong references to both geometrical sans of the thirties, and to their current influence.
