London- and Los Angeles–based independent type foundry Colophon designs contemporary and custom fonts for digital and analog media. For a site redesign that provided a quick, clear overview of its output, the foundry teamed up with YES, a London-based design studio and regular Colophon collaborator. YES tapped into its previous customer experiences when shopping for fonts to create a streamlined e-commerce site; visitors can test out Colophon’s fonts on each individual family page and quickly access relevant information for OpenType features and different language sets. Each family page features bespoke designs similar to Colophon’s printed specimens, inspiring visitors while enticing them with the foundry’s products.
