Customers have asked and we’ve always agreed – why doesn’t Klavika have a Black weight? Or an Extra Light? Good questions. Those lead us to wonder, what about an Ultra Black or a Thin as well? Why not fully explore the weight range, expand on the original and add something new? Sounds like the start of a great project!
And with that, Klavika Display was born. Available in four weights – Thin, Extra Light, Black and Ultra Black – and two widths – Standard and Condensed – the family is an addition to the existing Klavika and Klavika Condensed families. Although designed as en extension of the original series, Klavika Display works equally well on its own as a boastful display font. Singles, packs and the complete family are available in both desktop and webfont formats.
In our hearts, Chrono will always be called Chrono. However, we inadvertently crossed paths with another similarly named font and decided the name needed to change. So Chrono,
Residents of the Twin Cities will recognize the name Colfax as one of our city’s leafy, mostly residential streets. Consequently, it runs directly parallel to Bryant, another street-turned-font-name in our hands.
Already licensed Chrono?
There’s nothing you need to do except note the name change. You’ll still be able to upgrade to larger packages or add additional licenses but under the new name Colfax instead.
Similarly, Typekit users with Chrono already loaded in their library don’t need to make changes either. The fonts will function the same and the name won’t change to Colfax unless you republish your kit. If you’re using the default CSS selector (tk-chrono-web), this will still work after republishing, too.
We’re always on hand to answer questions, just get in touch.
We’re pleased to announce the release of our new typeface Colfax. At home within a range of design environments, Colfax is a refined oval sans serif of twelve styles ranging from Thin to Black with matching italics for each. Singles, packs and the complete family are available in both desktop and webfont formats.
Colfax was formerly named Chrono.
It took me five years to develop Elena. During that time, my constant companion was what we have taken to calling ‘the stack.’ Standing roughly a foot tall, the stack is a chronological collection of laser prints used to test Elena.
Sadly, after a couple of studio moves, the current stack only dates back to 2009. Luckily, 2006, ’07 and ’08 are somewhere. Test documents never get thrown away, only stored absentmindedly awaiting future serendipitous discovery.
Long hours were consumed poring over each and every test document to continually refine the typeface. Some tests are set in stone like the archetypal ‘a b c’ run through. Others are created on the fly to test a particular character, language or typographic convention. Sometimes, they’re just gibberish.
Whatever happens to the stack in the end (shoved into a box and stored in the basement?), it’s a tangible testament to the effort and thought process of a typeface.
We’re pleased to announce the long-awaited release of Elena from type designer and Process Type Foundry partner Nicole Dotin. Designed specifically for text and extended reading, Elena is a contemporary text face well suited for magazines, books and editorial design. Pairing the inspiration of the broad-nibbed pen with a desire for a modern page color, Elena is a face of economical proportions, moderate x-height and spare details.
Available in Regular and Bold with accompanying Italics, each style of Elena is replete with the necessary features one would expect for proper text work like small caps, case sensitive forms and a diverse range of numeral styles including those specifically for small caps. Basic versions start at $39 and full versions at $75.
More than four years in the making, we’re proud to finally announce the release of Capucine, a new family of types designed by Alice Savoie. With influences ranging from calligraphy to Art Nouveau to brush scripts, this five-weight family offers – to put it in a single phrase – joie de vivre. See more of Capucine and learn all the details about our latest release.
Anchor is our new four-weight family of round display gothics designed for maneuvering in especially cramped quarters. With weights ranging from Medium to Black, Anchor promises plump over-indulgence in the heavy weights and relatively sober display capabilities in the lighter weights. Of note are Anchor’s inflated arrows that can be seen throughout the specimens on this site. Available exclusively at the Process Type Foundry.

After much work and consideration we’re pleased to announce the arrival of our new website. Aside from easier navigation, new specimens and a ground-up rebuild, there are some additions of note:
Easy upgrades: Ever purchased a package or single weight only to realize you have to pay for the fonts all over again when upgrading to the complete family? We’ve always offered a credit for previous purchases towards upgrades but now we’ve made it easier. Users can now upgrade licenses, singles and packages online. Read more about the upgrading in our Help section.
Try fonts live with OpenType: With the widespread adoption of OpenType, understanding typographic features before buying is a must. Our new test typer has complete support for OpenType so testing fonts and their OpenType features live is now easier than ever.
Expanded PDFs: We’ve expanded all of our PDF specimens to include complete specs on character sets, OpenType features, language coverage and release information.
And there’s a lot more that’s changed. Have a look around and kick the tires. Welcome to the new website!
