    Joly takes its inspiration is the eighteenth century Dutch type. It began as a research/revival work, as one does when exploring type design history, and rapidly turned into a full contemporary type design project. 

    At first, Joly was to be a text layout oriented font family but it became clear that the typeface needed some additional optical sizes, hence the Display cuts.

    The sturdy foundations make it a great tool for long and small text sizes, the humanistic letterpress feel within the Text cuts let it cover many kind of uses: from small size print editorials to big display banners and posters. The display cuts are thought in a more contemporary way, taking advantages of what digital design has to offer when it comes to type design: smooth curves with high contrast and sharp cut edges in the true italic versions.

    The contrast between Roman and Italic makes the singularity of Joly quite intriguing. The balance obtained by combining the two different styles allow a great legibility with enough rhythmic in the layout to turn any texts from ‘classic’ to appealing. There’s a smooth balance between the sturdy and organic Romans with the high slanted sharp Italics.

    This is what makes Joly such an intriguing font: it isn’t a plain revival. It takes the most of its historical roots and transform them to become a contemporary and powerful type-tool.
