Barbaros
During a workshop with Jack Usine, the font Barbaros was created from a « big letter » post card of Blida. The narrowness of the character gives a imposing representation, but the little serif shows distinction and delicacy .

The name Barbaros is a wink at Barberousse, a ruthless pirate, but who also founded the city of Blida to receive the Andalusia refugees. He was a violent men but he was also altruist. The font reflect in a way this opposition.
