Font Designer – Taouffik Semmad

The Algerian designer Taouffik Semmad created the fonts ITC Atmosphere™ (1997) and ITC Shadowettes™ (1998).
Taouffik Semmad grew up speaking Algerian-Arabic dialect and French, studied Russian, and is now living in Montreal. This could perhaps explain his current passion, to "find a universal writing", which he admits is a Utopian idea. Created with brush and Chinese ink, the characters of ITC Atmosphere came from Semmad’s hand but only after they were fully formed in his mind’s eye.

ITC Atmosphere and ITC Shadowettes are part of the ITC Library OpenType Edition.
The Know How section offers detailed background knowledge to deal with all enquiries about the use of fonts.
