Typefaces

Communicating with consistent fonts is important to reinforce our brand personality and tone.  All fonts are suitable for use in print and digital applications.

TIEMPOS

The Tiempos Collection is a modern serif family for editorial typography. Tiempos Text gently updates the functionality of classic serif fonts for contemporary use. It’s robust and clear, perfect for economic and legible typesetting. Tiempos Headline is designed for larger headline sizes, striking a balance between practicality and elegance.

PROXIMA NOVA

Proxima Nova bridges the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid that combines modern proportions with a geometric appearance.

Typefaces: Sample Usage

Tiempos is used as a headline font while Proxima Nova should be utilized for a paragraph or body font. They each deliver a different tone but are more powerful when paired together, providing a nice contrast.
