Marie Boulanger

Freshly graduated from an MA in Design & Typography at ECV Paris, under the direction of Jean François Porchez, Marie Boulanger has an appetite for all things type. Coming from a strong multicultural background, she first studied Linguistics at University College London before training in type design, and enjoys thinking about typography and languages globally.

The debate on gender-inclusive writing in France sparked the idea for her original and engaging MA thesis XX, XY: Sex, Letters & Stereotypes, investigating the gendered identity of letter shapes and presented in December 2018.

On top of her ongoing research, Marie also works as a freelance designer and illustrator, and runs a blog about her various activities.
