The Hume Collection

Hume is a family of typefaces made for Nordaaker. I felt that we were in need of rebranding – the last logo had been made in 2008 and hadn’t aged too gracefully. We had no legacy to speak of, so I got a blank slate to create something entirely new. The result is a scattered set of typefaces that all follow a small set of rules and work well together.

We ended up with three display serif weights, a basic text set of three (regular, italic and bold), four weights of a sans-serif, and two weights monospaced.
