Endangered languages is a personal, typographic project about three endangered languages; Jèrriais, Guernésiais and Sercquiais, and the extinct language Auregnais.
The project consisted of modernist posters, designed in the international typographic style (commonly known as Swiss design), which favours simplicity, legibility and objectivity above all else. The use of sans serif typography, strict grids and asymmetrical layouts is essential. The style has always been seen to be one of the most effective means of communication in graphic design. An apt format for a study of endangered languages. 

The posters are typeset using Linotype Helvetica® Neue, designed by D. Stempel AG in 1983.
