ALTFORM – CoType Foundry

A solid and deceptively simple sans serif family with an alter-ego


CoType is the London based type foundry of Mark Bloom and Co.

They design contemporary typefaces for use in digital and print applications. In addition to their retail offerings, they also offer design of bespoke typefaces and modifications of their existing font library.



Altform from @cotypefoundry is a solid and deceptively simple sans serif family with an alter-ego. Resulting from the marriage between a geometric sans and a grotesque, this typeface has a universally neutral appeal.

Upon closer inspection, the reader will notice tiny exquisite curves in some characters like R, t, and k, which give Altform a subtle sophistication and recognisable character.

Altform is available in seven weights, each with italics, ranging from Thin to Black. The extensive language support allows type setting in most European languages written with the Latin script.

CoType™ Foundry offer a FREE 88pp, A5 type specimen book with exposed red stitched spine and printed in Pantone Red throughout on all Altform Essential and Full Family purchases.
