Orleans Collection

Designed in 2016 by Paul Barnes, Orleans is a crisp sans serif display face that explores the handmade traditions in letterforms created with broad nibs, such as blackletter, but also draws upon the rich tradition of calligraphic sans. Originally drawn for the redesign of the German edition of frieze, the magazine sadly closed before the redesign was implemented. The typeface was further developed with the help of Tim Ripper into seven weights with accompanying italics, first debuting in the Commercial Type Vault before its full release in late 2021.
