Halcom typeface is a contemporary sans-serif geometric font family released by The Northern Block and designed by its founder Jonathan Hill. For the creation of this typeface he was inspired by one of the most famous fonts ever – Futura. The 1927 Paul Renner’s masterpiece is a real landmark in the field of the type design which featured an approach so innovative that it influenced many designers in the following years. It was exactly that influence and the impact Futura had on later typefaces like Avenir that were explored and exploited by Jonathan Hill in order to create a font that takes all the characteristics of its predecessor in terms of efficiency, functionality and the beauty of the simple forms and yet possesses its own distinctive personality. Its main advantages are its great legibility and immaculate elegance that are due to its perfect, almost mathematical geometric forms. Overall, the Halcom font’s appearance will be very suitable for projects that require inclusion of neutral and very clean text that will be pleasing to the eye of any reader.
In addition to its formidable look, Halcom typeface provides plenty of choices to its users. It is supplied in 8 weights – Thin, Light, Book, Regular, Medium, Bold, Extra Bold and Black, all with their respective Italics. All the weights have 550 characters as well as very nice extras like alternative lowercase a, g and y, manually edited kerning, five variations of numerals and more.
Needless to say, with the release of Halcom font family Jonathan Hill proves yet again that the level of professionalism of The Northern Block type foundry is the highest possible. You can check this for yourselves by examining more of their latest projects:
