2nd Typeface Publishing Incentive Programme Result

May 2015

We are delighted to announce the result of the second TypeTogether Publishing Incentive Programme: Noort by Juan Bruce.


The project that most impressed our selection team was Noort, an in-progress typeface by Juan Bruce — currently an MATD student at the University of Reading. The original inspiration for Noort came from cartographic maps of the 17th century. Juan has been developing his typeface for editorial use, with a range of optical sizes to provide better performance in small text sizes. A generous x-height, long serifs, peculiar terminals, and a rough-style italic are all part of Noort’s charm. Juan’s intention is to support several languages, including Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, and Bengali.
