Noctis Typeface


Noctis is a serif font family inspired by the unusual wedge serifs of Aldo Novarese's 1972 typeface for H. Berthold A.G., Primate.

Free version incudes Noctis Thin, Thin Italic and Texturaea styles. The full family comes with five weights from Thin to Heavy, each with its own true italic, and with a complementary set of decorative patterns.

The strong Didonesque contrasts make this typeface both impressive at display sizes and easily readable in text size, while the sharp shapes of the triangular serifs and the distinctive letter shapes show their strength in logo design and impressive editorial use.

Inspired by the elegant, self conscious and over-the-top aesthetics of Italian fashion scene of the eighties and nineties, Noctis finds its strength in its strong textural nature, that is explored in the Noctis Texturae subfamily, where each letter is used as a tile to produce seamless patterns that can be used to extend the branding capabilities of Noctis.
