ABOUT







Durotype [Ben Blom]

Durotype is the foundry of Dutch type designer Ben Blom, who is based in Best, The Netherlands. Ben created the rounded serif family Classic Round (2010, +Classic XtraRound, 2011).

His second typeface family is Cigar (2010). He writes: Cigar is a revival of a 1970s and 1980s typeface called Cucumber or Nassel Black or Scanner. It has been carefully redrawn and expanded into a full-featured OpenType font. Cigar Octo and Cigar Quarto are new angular reinterpretations of Cigar. In Cigar Octo, most round shapes have been replaced by octagonal shapes. In Cigar Quarto, most round shapes have been replaced by rectangular shapes.

Seconda (2010) is a humanist sans family. Seconda Soft (2011), Seconda Round (2012) and Seconda XtraSoft (2011) are rounded versions of Seconda.

In 2011, he created the 16-style Simplo family, which was patterned after Alessandro Butti's Futura-like typeface Semplicità. This was followed in 2012 by Simplo Soft.

Classic Xtra Round was created in 2011.

Typefaces done in 2012: Flexo (a large x-height elliptical sans family), Flexo Contour.

Typefaces from 2014: Aspira (a 112-font sans superfamily).

In 2015, he designed the rounded sans typeface family Animo and the neutral sans typeface family Neutro (which was published in 2016).

Typefaces published in 2017: Innova (a grotesque described by Blom as more open, more squarish, more legible).

Typefaces from 2018: Flexo Soft.
