Tipografies asked us to design typeface specimens for two of their latest fonts: Bulo (sans serif) and Trola (serif). One of the main characteristics of these fonts is that they are related, both fonts sharing the same skeleton but each with its own distinctive flavor.
With their extensive character sets covering every level of the information hierarchy, we were interested in the idea of incorporating each font into a periodical, using Bulo in a left-wing publication and Trola in a more conservative one. The font names mean “hoax” or “lie” in Spanish, and Marc Torrell developed the headlines with a satirical perspective on the news.
The samples with Bulo combine collage with the halftone style of an old rotary press, giving the paper a nonconformist attitude; while the ones with Trola, illustrated by Agnès Decourchelle, show a more sophisticated tone.
