CF – Contrast Foundry250 EUR

The idea behind the design of the clock is that the numbers are "alive". We interpreted the clock as an element like soil, sand or stone, something stiff and motionless. Therefore, our numbers grow and flourish when stamped into the ceramic surface, as they would have if planted on natural soil or stone. And similarly to real plants, our flowers grow all over the surface. We play with the counter-spaces, the counterforms of the numbers. While the numbers them selves are embossed, the counter-shapes, since they are on the surface, become the main, most important element of the design.

Designers Contrast Foundry is a studio focused on designing letterforms in all their incarnations. The studio was founded by Maria Doreuli in 2014, initiated by a collaboration with Liza Rasskazova. Yet the online collection of fonts only became available through at the end of 2018. In the past years the full-time team grew from 2 to 6 people, as the studio was joined by Nikita, Egor, Anastasia, and Tasya. All team members have a background in design, yet they specialize in different fields from management to calligraphy and typeface mastering. Contrast Foundry’s work is built on contrasts.
