    Christophe Gaudard is a French graphic designer and a former student of Thierry Sarfis. His posters have been selected, awarded and exhibited in severals international poster and graphic design biennials and triennials. Since 2009 he teaches graphic design at the art school of Besançon.

    On this flyer for Citadelle Électronique, a music festival that took place in Besançon in 2007, Gaudard combines various styles of Emigre’s Lo-Res series of bitmap fonts with Courier New. The front side is reminiscient of embroidery samplers. It shows a number of additional monolinear pixel fonts with bifurcated serifs. These are unidentified and might be custom [see comment below].

      Christophe Gaudard confirms that the letterforms on the front are indeed a custom creation, and not a font:

      I have made a grid and all the letters and the drawing of the Trojan Horse were made square by square in this grid. I wanted something between electronic form and embroidery.
