Font Designer – Patricia Roesch-Pothin

Linotype released the first typefaces from French designer Patricia Roesch-Pothin in 2009: Tendria™ and Saussa™. Tendria’s letterforms were inspired by the logo for the French “Tendriade” mark; Saussa began life as brush-lettered artwork for fruit salad packaging. Tendria is a sturdy, upright script face with a warm, childlike feeling. Saussa is an informal script whose outstrokes function like serifs; its capitals have a lowercase structure. Tendria is reminiscent of the French word for tender, “tendre.” Saussa, a real advertising face for point-of-purchase displays, sounds a lot like the word “sauce.”
