It’s no secret that we’re pretty big fans of Brighton-based type designers Colophon. They wowed us in 2010 with the beautiful Aperçu font family, a face that fast become a favourite amongst a slew of trendy graphic designers, and have since produced an impressive array of fonts ranging from the ultra-modern to the tastefully vintage.
Their most recent offering La Fabrique was created in honour of the 23rd International Festival of Graphic Design in Chaumont to support Colophon’s lecture and workshop slots at the event. As with all Colophon faces La Fabrique is only available in an ultra-limited edition of 100, so if you’re on the hunt for a heavy sans-serif look no further, and get downloading while you’ve got the chance.
