Colfax is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Eric Olson and released through Process Type Foundry in 2012. It seems to share characteristics with both DIN and Neuzeit, although there is no mistaking it for either of those typefaces. Colfax is one of my personal favorite fonts and I’d love to see it used more on the web. The typeface is available in six weights—thin, light, regular, medium, bold and black—each with corresponding italics.
