Roquefort (the typeface) is a quirky expanded grotesque, which, like Roquefort (the cheese), is pongy and full of flavour. However, where Roquefort (the cheese) develops its pungent tang through a lengthy maturation process, Roquefort (the typeface) takes the opposite approach.
With the desire to avoid the over-thinking and over-refinement that can slowly sanitise a typeface design over time, Roquefort (the typeface) was produced hastily, with the hope of creating a grotesque with all the wonky inconsistencies that give a grot its distinct flavour.
Roquefort (the typeface) is likely to be expanded and improved over time, and, as with all Polytype Fonts, future updates will be free for existing licensees.
