Devanagari type survey

We have been designing Devanagari type since 2007, yet we are still uncertain when people ask us if a particular font is suitable for Sanskrit, Nepali or Marathi, languages that use the Devanagari script. Of course, our fonts include all required glyphs to render the text, but it is not yet clear whether a local reader would find the forms of those...

New monumental Typotheque type specimen, a world poem in 162 languages

Back in the days when in-person meetings were the norm, we asked Susana Carvalho and Kai Bernau from ACB to meet with us to discuss ideas for a new type specimen. We have worked together before on Works That Work magazine, and admired their engagement with content, skills, precision and dedication to production values. Designing a specimen for a library...

Maro, a razor-sharp stencil typeface for expressive text

Maro, the latest typeface by the prolific type designer Nikola Djurek, is a continuation of Djurek's investigation into the structure of letterforms. Maro is an unusual stencil typeface that, rather than slicing letters into parts, increases the contrast between the stick and thin to the point that the continuity of the letter construction is fractured....

Major update of Lava with variable optical spacing

Our aim at Typotheque is for our type family Lava, along with the November type system, to be able to support all living languages. This is an ambitious aim, and it is a long-term project, in which we hope to translate the concept of a typeface for the long form for various writing scripts. This goal has forced us to rethink the structure of the typeface....

Edge, a geometric slab serif typeface

When we celebrated our 20th birthday, we looked back at our early days and revived one of the designs from the 1990s, publishing it under the name Edge Sans. Now, the designer Ermin Međedović expands the idea of a sturdy geometric typeface even further, in a slab serif version of Edge. The underlying grid system behind the Edge's simple, rigorous...

A year in review… and looking ahead

As the year – which we will all remember for a long time – is coming to a close, we’d like to look back at previous months, at things we have done and learned.

 We published four new projects, three Latin typeface projects (Murtaugh and Riggs, Q Project and Tremolo Sans) and we added a completely new writing script to our collection – Greta...

Greta Sans Korean, a Hangul humanist Sans typeface system

Greta Sans is one of the largest commercially available type systems. It was originally published in 2012, and quickly gained popularity as a powerful toolbox capable of dealing with the most complex typographical situations. Thus far, Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, Hebrew, Devanagari, and Thai extensions have been released, opening access to other language...

Tremolo Sans, an Unlikely Companion Typeface

Nikola Djurek’s Tremolo, a popular font which was awarded a TDC Certificate of Typographic Excellence in 2016, now has a new companion typeface, Tremolo Sans. Quirky and engaging, Tremolo Sans is a low-contrast typeface with humanist features, very large x-height, narrow proportions and unorthodox cursive details, such as the handwriting-inspired ‘k’,...

Typotheque Automates Free Test Licenses

Our connection with our clients has always been the most important part of our work, and we have always done whatever we can to support our customers. For the last twenty years we’ve been arranging informal test licenses for designers who need to do extended testing of our fonts in their projects. And since development of a typeface can take years,...
