Jean Lochu is a type designer with roots and training deep in classical tradition. His early love of calligraphy provided the seed that was to grow into a career dedicated to the typographic arts. His first job, at a small printing shop, allowed him to work with type but not to create typeface designs. In 1968, Lochu met the French type designer Albert Hollenstien and began working at Studio Hollenstien. He has been drawing beautiful typefaces ever since.
