Here’s a small collection of posters reimagined to display our Haldane display script family.
Pottering once again, this time with members of Greater Albion’s ‘Haymer’ family, specifically ‘Haymer Inline’ and ‘Haymer Small Caps Inline’. I particularly like these in-line letter forms for their touch of ‘display’ without ostentation, and for the carefully rounded, and sometimes selectively asymmetric finals.
I’ve been having great fun devising these capitals, which are the start of Zanderley, a 1920’s American display typeface. There’s a certain slight lack of family harmony amongst them, but that is a deliberate reflection of the hand-drawn sources that these were somewhat inspired from, and in a strange sort of way adds something. More to follow…
Our four latest typeface families have now released on Fontspring and on Myfonts. Here are a few more sample images displaying Landsdowne Commerical,Wellmere Sans, Friendly Shaded Sans and Trivette. We know these four projects have taken a while to come to fruition, but we think they are worth the wait.
‘Landsdowne Commercial’ is a development of one of our designer’s earlier public domain releases, ‘Landsdowne’. All glyphs have been completely redrawn and refined. An extensive range of stylistic alternates and ligatures have been added, as well as a completely new bold face and several forms of numerals. Landsdowne commercial is ideal for period-inspired design work, such as posters and book covers as well for clear elegant communications.
Wellmere Sans is humanist a ‘sans serif’ typeface combining distinctive character with easy legibility. The emphasis here is on elegant simplicity and clarity. No alternate forms, no ligatures, just good simple design and elegance giving clarity and ease of communication. Ideal for timeless presentation of information, signs, posters, computer displays and so forth.
‘Friendly Shaded Sans’ is just what the name says. It’s a chubby and cheerful Sans Serif typeface that is ideal for poster work, headings and informal design generally.
Trivette is an ‘All Capitals’ calligraphic display face, where all upright strokes are rendered as curves and where everything approaching the vertical are rendered in threes. That’s probably as clear as mud, but the results combine charm and legibility with a decorative period air. Recommended for poster work where a sense of dignified fun is important.
