NaN is an exploratory and service-driven type design practice balancing weirdness and wisdom. Together with our wonderful rag-tag team of collaborators, crew and clients, we explore the relationship type has with code and technology – delivering projects with purpose. Find us at the intersection of serious and slaphappy.

Founder & Designer
Luke has designed typefaces for some of the biggest brands and organisations in the world, spanning consumer electronics, broadcast television, FMCG’s and various cultural institutions. He began his professional career at sixteen as a developer before working across a breadth of visual design for agencies in Paris, London and Berlin.
Type Designer & Font Engineer
Jean-Baptiste Morizot was born in France in 1983. He released his first typeface (Bluu, 2013) as an open source font, and then worked as font engineer and type designer for various foundries. He launched his own foundry (Phantom Foundry) in 2018 and joined NaN at the end of 2021, working on both retail and custom fonts.
Fatima lives and works between Paris, France and Mexico City, Mexico, her native country. She joined the Esad Type programme in Amiens in 2016. There, she designed her first typeface Cardone, recently released at 205TF. She shares her time between NaN, her own typographic practice and as part of the cycling project NVAYRK.
Designer & Foundry Support
Originally from the South West of France but now based in Berlin, Jérémy mixes his love for organic shapes and fresh food in his creations going from corporate identities to custom and retail typefaces under his alias Studio Triple. He also contributes since 2011 to the Velvetyne Type Foundry, creating and releasing open-source typefaces.
With over two decades of international experience crafting editorial and brand design, our Australian Associate knows exactly how type should be used and where. His ability to transcend aesthetic trends and guide pure typographic solutions is an asset to both NaN and our international clientele.
NaN’s studio manager / night owl / community manager / chaos master. No one ever met it (them?) although we find disturbing traces of its passing way too often to negate its existence.
Don’t follow it on twitter.
We’re always on the lookout for fresh points of typographic view. If you have a design that you think could fit our library then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We work with a wide variety of talented collaborators and even better people. We’re lucky to say that every single one has made an outsized contribution and made us smile along the way.
