About Rocher Font Family


ūüŹÜ Selected for Tipos Latinos 8.

ūüŹÜ Hiii Typography 2018 Merit Award.

Rocher was designed while looking for an answer to a simple question: what would a typeface look like if it was made of stone? It certainly would look solid, but did we have to add cracks and rubble so it would resemble rocks? We didn’t think so. We decided to tackle the problem a different way. We added corners where there usually aren’t any and threw some unusual letterforms into the mix. The result is a typeface that feels like stone, but if you look closely there is nothing inherently stony about it. Unexpected corners provide just the right amount of roughness, while unusual letterforms give the text an informal aesthetic, traces of something naive and handmade. A family was born when the sturdy letterforms were turned into a series of playful layers. With 9 fonts in total, Rocher can be mixed and matched to create unique layered compositions that add depth to the layout. We designed Rocher to be used in logotypes, packaging, mobile apps and headlines. We are confident you will find another handful of scenarios where it can shine.

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.
