Tour de Force Font Foundry has been designing and releasing type designs since it began almost a decade ago. Established in May of 2009 as an independent boutique font foundry, the studio is the only one of its kind in Serbia. Slobodan Jelesijevic and Dusan Jelesijevic set up Tour de Force Font Foundry and their “glyph factory,” as they call it, has been going strong ever since.
Both Slobodan and Dusan carry a high degree of perfectionism into their combined workflow. Where many people would view a design and see it as finished, the duo attend to the tiniest details to make sure that every typeface is the very best it can be. Their shared experience in graphic design, illustration, and typography lends itself to the utmost quality in their work, and they take great pride in what they do. It also helps that they enjoy their work. For Slobodan and Dusan, the right typography can make a company’s visual image sing, and they’re dedicated to making sure that their work hits every note perfectly, every single time.
In addition to bespoke typography, Tour de Force also offers dozens of retail type designs. One of their more recent releases through YouWorkForThem is Blond, a contemporary sans serif type family with humanist detailing.
Blond is beautifully balanced in its architecture, offering a high degree of legibility in any application. It’s a fresh take on the traditional sans serif, featuring graceful letterforms that are somewhat informal without coming across as too casual. Blond is available in Thin, UltraLight, ExtraLight, Light, Book, Regular, Medium, SemiBold, Bold, ExtraBold, and Heavy, with corresponding italics for each.
With 11 weights, Blond is well suited to an expansive variety of design projects, including headlines, editorials, publishing, presentations, infographics, corporate communications, white papers, website design, mobile applications, logos, and more. Its range of weights also makes this typeface an excellent choice for branding and identity projects, providing seamless design cohesion across multiple media types and sizes.
Blond offers stylistic alternates and also extends multilingual support to Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, and Pan African Latin languages.
Right now through August 31, 2018, Blond is on sale for 59% off of its regular price so it’s the perfect time to add this new sans serif to your font stash!
