What is the Coleface™ font?
Coleface was created by the British typographer Roy Cole, completed shortly before his death in 2012. It comprises six fonts: Coleface 30, 60, 90 and the italics 33, 66, 99. As with his earlier typeface families – Lina, Zeta, Colophon – Coleface reflects Roy’s aim in creating a sans serif typeface that is rhythmic, elegant and highly readable, thereby offering significant flexibility in terms of its potential uses.

Roy Cole studied typographic design under the tutelage of Emil Ruder at the Gewerbeschule in Basel in 1960. It was here that typographic history was being made through the creation of a style that epitomised modernity. This early experience made a profound impact on Roy in that the principles of order, simplicity and legibility, fused with experimentation, became a hallmark of his practise, as exemplified in his last font, Coleface.
