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.

New Logo for the Kunstmuseum Den Haag

Amsterdam agency KesselsKramer proposed using...

Oli: a neo-grotesque with irrepressible personality and charming details

Although the neo-grotesque genre tends toward cold, neutral typefaces, Oli’s charming details glow with unreserved personality at large and small sizes alike, injecting a strong visual character into the text. Oli is the creation of Indian designer Shiva Nallaperumal and has ambitious plans to support all the writing scripts of India (Devanagari,...

Nocturno Stencil, a variable Stencil font

Nocturno, designed by Nikola Djurek, was published back in 2013 and has been used extensively for small-text applications due to its superb legibility, crisp details and easy-flowing rhythm. Nocturno also features a Display version which is even sharper, with larger counters. Now, we are pleased to announce the Stencil version of Nocturno, which further...

November, our popular utilitarian street signage typeface, and its rounded version October, belong to Typotheque’s select collection of global fonts that support numerous writing scripts, and we are constantly working to extend them to cover more and more living languages. Download the PDF of October and November. For our latest expansion...

Comb, a suite of monospaced fonts ideal for designing forms

In either case, Comb, by Belgian designer and developer Frederik Berlaen, can help to get the job done. Comb Forms contains a comprehensive range of box, line and comb elements all assigned to keystrokes to make creating...

Typotheque’s 20th! Edge’s 20th!

We registered the typotheque.com domain in September of 1999, and the first version of our website went live later that year, which makes us 20 years old (pheeew!). While we usually do about four new typeface releases in a year, we are celebrating this milestone with four releases this month, one every Tuesday. If you looked at the Typotheque...
