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,...

The Q Project, an open-ended typographic play system

Q, designed by Peter Biľak, consists of 6 uppercase base fonts plus 35 attachments that can be added as individual layers (Q Base and Serifs). It also comes with a variable font with a motion axis (Q Mechanic), as well as three levels of basic shapes that can be combined into new forms (Q Shapes). The base fonts and the attachments are...

Murtaugh & Riggs, a duo of complimentary typeface families

The past three decades have been marked by the growing popularity of extensive typeface families, particularly families of sans and serif fonts developed by modulating the contrast between thick and thin strokes. With Murtaugh & Riggs, designer Nikola Djurek has taken a new approach to building families, basing this project not on stroke...

What we have learned so far?

Happy 2020! With both the old decade and our 20th anniversary behind us, now might seem like a good time to look back on all the accomplishments that have brought us this far. But perhaps instead of listing what we have done, it would be more useful to reflect on what we have learned. The world is culturally rich, and promoting its diversity...

Typotheque Solo Exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Den Haag

When it comes to exhibitions, we have attended many, organised and curated a few, and even designed some, but our work has not yet been the subject of a solo exhibition in a major art museum. Until now. The former Gemeentemuseum Den Haag has a new name, Kunstmuseum Den Haag, and a new logo designed by Typotheque. The museum has also adopted the Ping...
