    Commissioned by Paris Musées, Thomas Oudin (Mo-To studio) designed the graphic identity for the largest ossuary in the world: Les Catacombes de Paris, or the Paris Catacombs, with the remains of approximately 6 million humans.

    This essential place in Paris reaches a very international public (more than 500,000 visitors per year, 47% of whom are foreign), requiring a simple, direct and sober graphic language.

    This project was the subject of a typographic commission: Dédale designed by Thomas Bouville. This hybrid typographic family between the category of incises and slab serifs is deployed in three distinct weights in order to meet the common uses of composition.

    Dédale is available on 205TF. See more images on the portfolio website of Mo-To.
