Mathieu Réguer was born in 1985. After studying visual communication at the École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués Duperré and earning an applied arts degree in type design from the École Estienne, he received a Master of Arts in Typeface Design from the University of Reading (UK), where he studied with Gerry Léonidas, Fiona Ross and Gerard Unger. There he developed a specific interest in Arabic typography.
"Garamond is an ongoing personal rediscovery, but it is also a universal rediscovery".
Since then, he has set up as a independent type designer, working in Paris and London. He works primarily with Typofonderie – assisting Jean-François Porchez with font design and production –, as well as for Linotype, Intégral Ruedi Baur, C-Album and the Atelier Muësli. In addition, he teaches typography and character design at the École de Communication Visuelle (ECV) in Paris. His typeface Cassius earned a Certificate of Typographic Excellence from the New York Type Directors Club in 2008.
