Carine Vadet-Perrot

Carine Vadet-Perrot is a graphic and type designer in Brittany, France. Letterforms have always fascinated her, especially in the way they can express more than just words—sparking emotion and connecting people. She describes type design as an empowering and endless game. A game in which each participant defines their own rules, and plays as they want; a game to be played alone or together.

Carine runs Graine de papier, the graphic design studio she founded in 2010. Her journey in the letter world started with a calligraphy workshop about Roman capitals. Since then, she has chosen to learn from the most inspiring people she knows. In 2022, Carine graduated from Type West, the postgraduate certificate program in type design led by Letterform Archive.
