We are delighted to see Roxane Gataud's typeface Bely
's 7 Excellent New Typefaces
list and in such a good company. According to Print
magazine "Many experts gave Bely high marks, including Amy Papaelias, who wrote: My favorite thing about Bely is, of course, the extreme display weight. It exudes an air of confidence, whimsy and sophistication that says, ‘IDGAF,’ although probably in French."

It provides a useful and easy to use tool to identify fonts based on particular features.

and Roxane Gataud's Bely
in September 2016s
round up in very good company.
According to Coles, Marco
“is a virtually effortless translation of calligraphy into a contemporary serif. It’s one of the fresher designs to be inspired by the well-trod 15th-century Venetian models.” and Bely
, “it’s the debut of a designer who seems unbound by the standard type design conventions. Bely
is a truly modern take on the oldstyle serif.”

Veronika Burian and José Scaglione met at the University of Reading whilst completing their MAs in Type Design, launching their independent type foundry TypeTogether in 2006. TypeTogether developed out of the desire to publish high quality typefaces and work on new type projects together (hence the name). The foundry provides common ground for intense cooperation with other type designers, creating an interesting and diverse typography platform that is highly regarded across all design disciplines internationally. And we’re just getting started!
We are very happy to announce that Dr Gerard Unger’s Alverata
has been awarded Bronze in the Latin category at the Hiii Typography 2015

In total 282 pieces of works from more than 20 countries and regions around the world were submitted of which 102 works have been selected, including 32 works from Latin Group, 40 ones from Chinese Group and 30 ones from Student Group. The 2015 edition counted with three renowned judges: graphic designer Bo Linnemann (Denmark), type designer Jean-Baptiste Levée (France) and designer Paula Scher (USA).
Each year the SOTA Catalyst Award is given to someone demonstrating significant achievement and future promise in the field of typography. Roxane Gataud received the award this year, with the judges offering high praise for her seamless and impressive integration of type into a wide range of projects. Roxane’s typeface, Bely
