Colroy is a superbly crafted contemporary Clarendon-like typeface. His most remarkable advantage is its perfect suitability for body text, equipped with remarkable Italics and covers up to 86 languages. Furthermore, it supports Small Caps and various OpenType features. Compared to existing Clarendon-like typefaces, Colroy is slightly more geometricized but still has the vividness which you will appreciate in traditional Clarendon typefaces. Hermann Eidenbenz redrew the original Clarendon for the Haas’sche Schriftgiesserei in Münchenstein in the early 1950s, more than 60 years later Marc Droz created a modern and thoroughly crafted Slab Serif which stands in the Swiss tradition of strong and somehow understated typefaces. The creation of Colroy started in 2009 during the CAS Typedesign at the Zurich University of the Arts, ZHdK and was completed as a font family with six cuts in 2014.
