Hi there! I'm Maxime Rabot, a visual designer and type lover based in Berlin.

“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more left to take away.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I use my passion for design to create thoughtful and engaging visual experiences.

I help building design systems for clients like Zeiss, NRC, DW or Berliner Zeitung. In 2020, I started a design system starter kit called Core to help you building your very unique design system.

I craft compelling and engaging brand identities for freelancers and small companies like Yourequal.

I help designers with Figma ressources to develop their design skills. Check some work like The basics of typography, Selection of Google Fonts, the Designer Starter Kit and more.

I sell high quality e-books and design assets to help digitals building engaging visual experiences. Examples are Basics of Typography or Core Pro.

What are design systems good for?

When your customer is using your product to accomplish a very specific task, that one task is the only thing that matters to them. Creating a consistent experience that works for everyone and allows them to accomplish their goals is building trust. A Design System is the single source of truth which groups all the elements that will allow the teams to design, realize and develop a product.

What is typography good for?

95% of the information on the web is written language. That’s why typography plays an essential part in the presentation process. Good typography establish a strong visual hierarchy, provide a graphic balance to your presentation, and set the overall tone. It will guide and inform your users and ensure an enjoyable user experience.

About me

I’m a Berlin based visual designer with over 15 years experience. I love creating engaging graphic experiences and using the power of typography to organize visual information in the most digestible and comprehensive way. When I'm not in front of my computer, I most often on my bike riding through Berlin, exercising my lettering skills and getting inspiration from the outside.
