Olivier Gourvat is a graphic designer based in France. Following his printing experience, he pursued web design and interactive web functions, founding a website company with three associates in 1999. Then in 2004 he established his own creative studio, Mostardesign, which is an independent creative studio specializing in the interactive and static visual arts. With a focus on brand creation, custom type, illustration and advertising, his studio has worked on a wide variety of projects in the last two decades for clients across the world.
In 2004 Olivier began experimenting with type design for use in the studio, and with the creation of his first font Visoko in 2009, his focus shifted primarily to type design. He now primarily creates versatile type families like Sofia, one of his best selling fonts to date.
