Nabla – The Isometric Colour Font by Arthur Reinders Folmer & Just van Rossum

Nabla was Designed by Arthur Reinders Folmer (Typearture) and engineered by Just van Rossum, Nabla is built using the new COLRv1 color-font format, allowing smooth gradients, sharp highlights and blended shadows to be captured inside a font-file.

H/T to Vitaly Friedman for tweeting this:

Internal palettes give the option for ready-made color swaps, while implementation on the web allows you to choose your own hues. 

And Nabla is more than just a color font, as its variable axes allow highlights and extrusion depth to be changed, making it a typographic playground you can customize to your hearts content.

Nabla is a new ambassador for the COLRv1 font-file specification, and hopefully it will be able to shine in every browser and app soon.
