Rocher was designed while looking for an answer to a simple question: what would a typeface look like if it was made of stone? It certainly would look solid, but did we have to add cracks and rubble so it would resemble rocks? We didn’t think so.
We decided to tackle the problem a different way. We added corners where there usually aren’t any and threw some unusual letterforms into the mix. The result is a typeface that feels like stone, but if you look closely there is nothing inherently stony about it. Unexpected corners provide just the right amount of roughness, while unusual letterforms give the text an informal aesthetic, traces of something naive and handmade.
A family was born when the sturdy letterforms were turned into a series of playful layers. With 9 fonts in total, Rocher can be mixed and matched to create unique layered compositions that add depth to the layout.
We designed Rocher to be used in logotypes, packaging, mobile apps and headlines. We are confident you will find another handful of scenarios where it can shine.

Desktop Fonts: OpenType (CFF-flavored OTF)
Webfonts: WOFF, WOFF2 and EOT
Please note these fonts are NOT color fonts, meaning they don’t work like emoji do. You will need a desktop publishing software such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW or Inkscape to achieve the effects shown in this page. Layering fonts on websites works pretty much as a hack, but it works (case in point, the type tester above). The webfonts are NOT optimized for small sizes, so use them only at 24px or larger.
