W Type Foundry’s Moncler, designed by David Súid is one of my personal favourites for 2020. Its unconventional features of caps in lowercase and variable specification add an almost rapacious feel to the letters. The letterform is reminiscent of noir imagery, hinting to the mysterious, romantic and illicit. The outcome is a contrasting font with 220+ weights and widths, ranging from Condensed to Expanded and Light to Heavy. Inspired by the noir, the two posters unveil a plot set in two different harbors as a remote location where two emotionally charged stories unveil. Moncler Typeface is currently available at W Type Foundry’s website.
