Xavier Dupré (1977) studied graphic design in Paris and calligraphy & type design at the Scriptorium de Toulouse. He began working in 1999 as lettering artist in a Parisian design agency for two years.
Since 2001, when he published his first typefaces, he spend much of his time between Europe and Southeast Asia, especially in Cambodia where he drew 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 have received "Certificate of Type design Excellence" from the New York’s Type Director’s Club and the Tokyo’s Type Director’s Club.
In 2016, a book, Xavier Dupré typographical itinerary, published by Zeug, features most of his typefaces with a long interview by Julien Gineste.
