Description

A fun departure from Petr van Blokland’s other types, PowerLift is a chunky, single-weight display slab that comes in two versions: Tight and Tight Outline. PowerLift embraces and rethinks the challenge of combining heavy letterforms with blocky serifs. In some places, apertures close up and the forms fold into themselves, creating surprising new counters where traditionally one would expect openings. The styles fit together seamlessly, but each can also be used as a standalone typeface. TYPETR, 2018.

Type Designer

TYPETR

Born in Gouda, the Netherlands, in 1956, Petr van Blokland graduated cum laude from the graphic arts program at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KABK) in The Hague in 1980. With his partner Claudia Mens, Van Blokland worked for over thirty-five years as a designer in the studio they cofounded. His output ranged from sketching and model-making to programming in various languages. He specialized in systematic design: corporate identities, form systems, online publications, and tools for type design.

After decades of publishing through Font Bureau, Petr van Blokland cofounded Type Network, where he exclusively releases new typefaces under the TYPETR label. He plans to publish new families on a regular basis and will also write the occasional educational post about graphic design, typography in general, and how to use type in particular.
