ABOUT







NF Fonts (or: Nicole Fally Fonts) [Nicole Fally]

Nicole Fally started NF Fonts in 2012. She is an Austrian-born graduate of the type design program at the University of Reading in 2010.

She created the typeface Miss Informed there. It has Latin styles (regular, italic, connected script), as well as Hebrew styles (regular and script). The Latin has one-sided serifs to fit in with the Hebrew. The italic and script styles are soft, smooth and balanced.

In 2011, she published Hammersmith One with Sorkin Type / Google Font Directory: Hammersmith One is a very low contrast typeface inspired by the Johnston UK lettering tradition. Hammersmith One shows the quirks of a somewhat naive, handmade, brush written letters including a wider than normal "e" and "s" as well as dark joins between stroke which are normally compensated for in type. The sources for this design have been adapted not just for type but specifically for use as a web type. This font works well to even smaller sizes than was originally expected. Nicole Fally's elegant art deco typeface Limelight (2011, Sorkin Type) can also be found on the Google Font Directory, as well as Ovo (2011). Vast Shadow (2011) is a Victorian slab serif advertising type. Pinyon Script (2011, Sorkin Type) is a (free) romantic round hand script style font.

BUT (2012) was first drawn as a logotype for the magazine BUT Bilder und Texte, which was published by an experimentally-oriented non-commercial initiative. This fat poster / headline typeface became the first commercial typeface at NF Fonts.

Oldenburg (2012, Google web fonts) is a slabby bouncy poster face. Stoke (2012, Google Web Fonts) is a semi-wide high contrast serifed text typeface. Rye (2012, Google Web Fonts) is a medium contrast design inspired by posters using wood type, and is in the Western style.
