Colt Soft

Expanding on the idea of Colt, Colt Soft takes the family closer towards the realm of its original inspiration—type on vehicles from the 60s. During the decade, hefty letters were often embossed into the back of truck tailgates. Because of this technique, corners on the characters were never perfectly sharp, giving a slightly rounded appearance. Colt Soft takes this idea and applies it to the original Colt typeface giving it an overall softened appearance.
