NoortDesigner: Juan Bruce
Publisher: TypeTogether
Noort was designed by Juan Bruce and released by TypeTogether. Noort consists of 10 designs and household bundle options. p > Juan Bruce's Noort is not a type household for wayfinding or mapmaking alone, but for clarifying info and interesting readers along their own journey. The info designer's role is to bring clearness and style to frustrating amounts of information, which fortunately is Noort's purpose also. Hierarchies submit to its will and layering colour just includes more existence to its active posture.

Noort's style utilizes the proven editorial text features of a large x-height, sufficient spacing, and low contrast to examine all the boxes for paragraph text usage. But it's the long serifs, broad characters, and overall typographic presence that make it resilient and reduce the task of reading in little point sizes. These information mean Noort is able to demonstrate significance not just with its five pitch-perfect weights, however with its brindled colour within a layout.

Noort's roman and italic designs play off each other by transplanting their design functions. The roman design's serifs are moved in compound but expectedly increased in speed in the italic styles. And the italic's inktraps and apart strokes are echoed in the middle of the roman's upright structure. Where digitisation could have removed the impact of the hand, Noort retains the analogue nature of its creation. This antiphonal seeding of details creates a cohesive family that is as interesting as it is functional.

Noort's axis and serifs have a somewhat varying ductus - the directional circulation that aids reading and character clarity. Its latent obviousness in text sizes immediately becomes its signature style when bumped as much as subhead sizes. And because Noort's counters are so large and welcoming, its much heavier weights can broaden more within themselves than along their exterior edges.

Noort's ten overall fonts cover the Latin An Extended glyph set to bring its unbordered, globetrotting sensibilities to your projects. OpenType functions include ligatures, portions, and several figure styles, along with mature-rather-than-overbearing swashes. Lined up with TypeTogether's commitment to produce top quality type for the international market, the total Noort household can set digital and printed works with ease, capitalising on the dual needs of clear information and interesting textual artistry.
