Dez Boulder is a Strong-Brewed OpenType display face with Multiple Personalities.

Dezcom Typefaces is proud to announce the release of "Dez Boulder," a rock-on typeface with three personalities on display.

The Dez Boulder family of display faces acts in a supporting role to give meaning to message and context to content. It is a very bold face, not understated. Each of its three personalities (and their sub-personalities) have a different timbre to speak the nuance of your message in a bold voice. Dez Boulder works like a character actor, presenting the author’s lines but not with the deadpan delivery of a news reporter. Boulder develops the role, adding meaning through facial expression, gesture, and body language.

A bold and character-rich display family in three personalities: ego, id, and alter, each with its own way of acting—Dez Boulder averages more than 800 glyphs per style with uppercase, lowercase, small caps, proportional lining figures, small cap figures, superiors, inferiors, fractions, stylistic sets, alternates, ordinals, case specific punctuation, and more. It has a full range of diacritics and covers all European languages using the Latin script.

Great job, Chris. All your work on this really shows. It has so much "flavor" and still is beautifully balanced and polished. Congratulations!

Isn't "Boulder" the Brtish spelling for "Bolder"? ;-)

Many congratulations for a great work!

Congratulations Chris!

I really like this:
Dez Boulder works like a character actor, presenting the author’s lines but not with the deadpan delivery of a news reporter.

And this:
Boulder develops the role, adding meaning through facial expression, gesture, and body language...

...line of action -- and we have animation :)

Powerhouse stuff Chris!
I'm assuming this is the Regular; can we expect a bolder Boulder?

dezcom's picture

Thanks, Vladimir and Nick!

Nick, the bolder version is only visible under black light so it will be a hot item for the Disco crowd :-)

Hope some of my German speaking friends can check the German on this?

Gepflasterte Straßen (plural) erfordern Fettdruck.


Eine gepflasterte Straße (singular) erfordert Fettdruck.

But I don’t understand the meaning of the second phrase. What do you mean? On the other side both phrases are good as they are, because they have a certain charm. "Schrift" is an artificial verb in the second phrase.

Many thanks, Arno!

Chris, in lieu of a dedicated Boulder forum at Typophile, you could start your own website for Boulder, (like Carl does for his typefaces).
Too bad someone beat you to the URL :-)
And this too!
