Yanek Iontef loves the graphics on cardboard packaging. For years, he collected empty cardboard boxes from imported goods. His studio soon looked like a storage room. To regain space, he began transforming the visual language of the boxes into a font with universal appeal. Then, he donated all of the cardboard collection to his local recycling facility.

There are two FF Cartonnage fonts from Iontef: FF Cartonnage Regular (a regular font, with a full, basic OT character set) and FF Cartonnage Pict. This set of symbols contains over 100 glyphs based on informational pictograms. Both fonts imitate the imperfections of print on cardboard, combined with the wear-and-tear of shipping.
