    Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich is an award-winning designer from San Francisco. For the website and branding of his own firm, De Vicq brings together two typefaces by Darden Studio: Dapifer, a low-contrast old style with slab serifs, and Halyard Micro, a sans serif optimized for smallest sizes, and part of the Halyard superfamily.

    On the website, each of the areas of De Vicq’s expertise – restaurants, publishing, and type – is introduced with a sentence about the company’s design approach. These quotes as well as the card graphics on the index pages are set in Dapifer Light. The top menu is rendered in letterspaced caps from Halyard Micro Bold, providing a firm counterpart to the airy text.

    The business card uses Halyard Micro in Black and Black Italic styles. Since Halyard Micro here is used at a larger size than what it was made for, De Vicq tightened the default open spacing a little.

    Headline and quote are set in Dapifer Light, the latter with hanging punctuation. At 12px size, the gracile letterforms of the Light weight wouldn’t holp up. That’s why De Vicq changed to the Medium weight for “Share”.
