A new condensed headline typeface designed by Matt Willey, art director of The New York Times Magazine, founder of the former Studio8 and co-founder of Port and Avaunt, possesses all the bold markings of his impactful design style. Tall, block-like letterforms and tight kerning characterise NSW01, and its application is showcased in samples also bearing Matt’s signature palette of red, black and earth tones. Both upper and lower case iterations have equal heights and widths, showing little to no ascending or descending features, and the design is consistent and instantly recognisable for its simplicity and weight.
