Xavier Dupré studied graphic design in Paris and calligraphy and type design at the Scriptorium de Toulouse. In 1999 he joined a Parisian design agency where he worked as a lettering artist for two years. In 2001 he published his first typefaces, and since then he has spent much of his time between Europe and Southeast Asia, especially Cambodia, drawing Latin typefaces as well as Khmer scripts for local NGOs (Sipar, CKS, Open Institute).
His work is published by FontFont, Emigre, Typofonderie, TypeTogether, and Sudtipos, and some of his fonts have received "Certificate of Type design Excellence" from the New York Type Directors Club and the Tokyo Type Directors Club.
In 2016 the book "Xavier Dupré Typographical Itinerary", featuring most of his typefaces and a long interview by Julien Gineste, was published by Zeug.
