My thanks to Commercial Type for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Duplicate, a collection of new typefaces by Christian Schwartz and Miguel Reyes, paying homage to legendary French type designer Roger Excoffon.
Duplicate comes in three varieties: Duplicate Sans, Duplicate Slab, and Duplicate Ionic, each in 6 weights from Thin to Black. Designed for use in publications, websites, and corporate identities, Duplicate works beautifully at a wide range of sizes, from captions to headlines, and all 36 styles have been manually hinted for use on screen.
These are great typefaces — attractive, readable, and very distinctive. Duplicate is available now from Commercial Type for print, mobile apps, and as self-hosted webfonts.
