    Renald Louissaint is a Brooklyn-based designer and illustrator. In his current role as a brand designer at Medium, he created the covers for a series of collections with curated stories on specific trending topics and themes. This post presents nine covers that give a glimpse into Louissaint’s imaginativeness and versatility. His rich typographic palette includes many fresh faces that were issued in the past few years – and even some that haven’t been officially released yet.

    Watch Renald Louissaint share “Insights Through Introspection” on June 14 at Typographics. Fonts In Use is proud to be a media partner of the conference. See more work by speakers of the 2019 edition.

    For the cover for Office Politics, Louissaint paired caps from Bitstream’s Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed with ASCII art made with the Text to ASCII Art Generator by Patrick Gillespie (aka Pat or JK). The selected FIGlet “fonts” are called Swamp Land by bpg and 3-D by Daniel Henninger. Their character patterns are here rendered in Aperçu Mono.
