This week, Adobe Typekit announced the new Typekit Marketplace. I am very happy to be a part of it, along with my partners at Type Network and a number of other excellent type foundries. I am very excited to share my work with a whole new set of visual designers, and to see a large, influential company like Adobe placing such a high value on type.

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.
