Since the announcement of OpenType Variable Fonts, I have been excited to try out the new format. For my first experiment, I decided to keep it simple and use a font with only one interpolatable outline: a beveled square.

Forma DJR is a revival of Nebiolo’s classic Italian sans that brings a measure of warmth to the cold, rational neo-grotesque genre. Drawn with Roger Black for his 2013 redesign of Hong Kong Tatler, our interpretation recaptures the spirit of late-60s/early-70s typography with letterspacing that is tight but not touching, and rounded corners and tapering stems that echo the imperfections of ink and paper. Meet Forma DJR, the interesting boring sans.
