Colophon Foundry nominated for Design of the Year

Congratulations to Anthony and Edd of The Entente/Colophon Foundry, who have been nominated for Design of the Year by London's Design Museum for their work with Castledown Primary School. They were still working on this project when we had the pleasure of meeting them for an interview last year.

The project, which started as a small commission for a font family for the school, soon grew to be a full collaboration with the staff and children of Castledown. The type family now functions not only as an identity system, but also helps the kids learn how to write, and it's dyslexia friendly — brilliant!
