Nil is originally based on “Vogue”, a Stephenson Blake sans caps typeface made in 1929, and a slightly different version called “Intertype Vogue”, an American sans-serif, cut by Intertype in light and bold weights early in 1930. It was created for Vogue magazine, a Conde Nast publication, but was later released to the general printing trade and became an alternative to “Futura”.
Paris based design studio deValence discovered “Intertype Vogue” and had the long-standing project to draw a modern revival. Together, we re-worked on the first sketches, modernizing it, making it slightly bolder, with a bigger x-height… We decided to emphasize the somewhat weird aspects and develop the original alternate glyphs to get away from the old geometrical Futura-like feeling and bringing the typeface elsewhere. We developed the newly named “Nil” for the studio’s exclusive usage through various projects.
