About

Before it actually appeared on Ross’ webpage, Forma DJR managed to go all the way from being a careful revival of the typeface from 1968 designed by Nebiolo studio to a weather forecast on VRT NWS as well as the covers of fancy magazines.

Apart from the original, Forma DJR cares about the fashion for sans serifs with little letter spacing and rounded angles from the 1960s and the 1970s. For these subtleties not to be lost at very large and very small sizes, Forma comes in five optical sizes, from Micro (less than 8pt) to Banner (from 72pt).

Today Forma DJR offers 25 styles (+ a variable font), each coming with a set of Helvetica-style alternates. (After all, in 1968, Forma was created as an answer to Helvetica, among other things). Cyrillic was drawn by Jovana Jocić.
