About Colin Font Family

Colin is a fresh, somewhat futuristic geometric sans serif type with a large x-height that, to me, communicates both seriousness and cheerfulness. It supports 70 languages incl. monotonic Greek and comes in 7 weights with a small number of alternate glyphs (ss01) for more flexibility. It features fractions, old style and tabular figures. Colin works great in titles, displays and short paragraphs.

And where does it come from? To be honest, the reason for this font is a selfish one. I wanted a typeface where my initials (n and c) look identical, just rotated by 90 degrees. That didn’t completely work but, hey, it’s pretty close.

About Tickbite Type

Tickbite Type is a type foundry at the larval stage. Whatever it’ll be once it pupates, it’ll start with C. Like the primary designer, the foundry is a mix of carbon and ink, ideas and experiments and way too much liquorice. The foundry is run by evolutionary biologist Dr. Nils Cordes and challenged daily by his young son (whose favorite letter is the lower-case g) and daughter (who doesn't have a favorite letter – yet).
