The typeface design to the right was entered into our current Typography4: Typeface design competition. Created by Marc Droz of Nouvelle Noire in Zurich, Switzerland, the typeface was designed “as a contrast to existing clarendon like typefaces, Colroy is slightly more geometrical, its style seemingly constructed. At the same time it maintains the vibrancy characteristic of the slab serifs.”
