New release: Portada Thai

Portada Thai: Warmly looped

In 2016 we released the watershed font family Portada, aimed at reclaiming the ability of serifs to be used on small screens or unwelcoming pixel grids. Portada went on to win awards, be used excellently on websites (like our own), and become the brand typeface for Austrian Airlines. Today we’re announcing the release of Portada Thai by Pilar Cano in concert with Veronika Burian and José Scaglione. Portada Thai is a modern looped font family that tames the screen with a warm tone. We’ve bundled the entire Latin family with it and included the dark and light icon sets. Check it out on our website type tester during your downtime and see how the screen has met its match.

Bely in BCNegra

Bely in BCNegra

BCNegra holds their conference in Barcelona each year to celebrate crime fiction. This year their optically engrossing identity — by Spanish graphic designer Susana Blasco — used Roxane Gataud’s Bely Display for headlines with some kick. Bely was also used in text, billboards, posters, the printed programme — every touch point. The literature festival invited top speakers, panellists, and attendees to discuss works, the state of authorship, and engage in networking in a fun atmosphere.
