About Bork Font Family


ūüŹÜ Selected for Tipos Latinos 9.

Bork is a display typeface that was inspired by an exercise in blackletter calligraphy. The style’s characteristic dark texture is seen mainly in the lowercase, with uniform spacing (where counterspace equals letterspace), shapes that recall the straight, interrupted strokes used in that style of writing, and the peculiar construction of certain letters. On the other hand, the uppercase aims for a more conventional roman construction, making it more legible for modern-day readers.

It features an extensive character set that includes contextual and stylistic alternates, superior/inferior figures, arbitrary fractions, as well as several unusual ornaments, symbols and punctuation. Bork is especially suited for use in book covers, headlines, packaging and logotypes.

About Harbor Type

Harbor Type is an independent type foundry based in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. It is run by Henrique Beier, graphic designer by major, type designer by heart. I develop typefaces for retail and provide font production services to other foundries and type designers. The foundry was started in 2014 with the release of Densia Sans. First available on a pay-what-you-want basis, it was well received by the public and inspired me to pursue designing typefaces for a living. Later on came Graviola, Garibaldi, Malva and others. Along the way I learned that fonts are more than just nice letterforms. They stand at the crossroads of design and technology, which is why I also pay special attention to the technical aspects of typography.
