Nicéphore Font Family

Nicéphore Font Family

Nicéphore Font Family is a modern and cool sans-serif font family. Drawing influence and mood from phototypesetting era sans-serif fonts (notably Brasilia by Albert Hollenstein and Albert Boton, 1958-60), Nicéphore is a disguised quiet guy. Look again and you’ll probably notice its highly contrasted joints, its solid feeling and surprising letter shapes. The Nicéphore family is a variable font exploration of the “multiplexing” principle: each six styles are drawn on the same width, allowing you to change weight on the fly without disrupting the layout. A perfect choice for nice rollover effects on the web, type animations… you name it! Nicéphore takes a very unconventional approach to width and weight distribution by not changing the former while increasing the later. The unsettling result is a striking display typeface with a monumental x-height, very short ascenders and descenders and unobtrusive diacritics, all specifically meant for tight line spacing and dense page texture. Its tight letter-spacing contrasts with an otherwise quite extended overall letterform design, equipping Nicéphore with a special power to stand out from the crowd. As with every Apex typefaces, it is packed with numerous stylistic sets and alternates to provide typesetters with even more options to tweak the voice and feeling of any piece of text.

Nicéphore Font is free for personal use. So, if you want to access more features and its full license contact Apex Type Foundry designer
