“Colophon” comes from the Greek word “κολοφων” or "kolophon," which means "summit" or "finishing touch." It is a description of the details and methods behind a publication and is often found on the last few pages of books.
The Neoteric Design logo is set in Futura. Futura is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Paul Renner in 1927; it is considered the major typeface development to come out of the Constructivist orientation of the Bauhaus movement. It makes use of pure geometric forms of the circle, triangle, and square, with no serifs or frills, and near equal weight strokes. Primary navigation, page titles, for this site are set in Gibson, and body text set in FF Tisa Pro. This site utilizes Typekit and Fonts.com to service sophisticated typography for web and mobile.
We redesigned and redeveloped this site in the summer of 2016, refreshing previous work from the spring of 2015. We are constantly revising.
InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Vim, Atom, and Sublime Text 2 were used in the creation of this site. The site runs on Ruby on Rails, using Neoteric Design's custom CMS. It is authored using HTML5, and complies with many web standards as set by the W3C.
