Here’s a showcase for our Adantine typeface family, currently offered at a discount on Fontspring and Myfonts. The theme of today’s collectionis a recreation of old-fashioned refined ‘drink’ advertising….(well, ok,maybe not in the case of the ‘Babysham’).
Here’s a small selection of re-imagined period artwork, stylish images which are ideal to show of out flamboyant (and suitably flamboyantly named, we think) Wellingborough typeface family.
We have taken something of a couture theme with this selection of artwork today, whether it be the House of Elliott’s (remember that, anyone?) summer day collection, a glove manufacturer, or the seaside …
We couldn’t help admiring the lettering included in the design of this rather splendid poster, promoting the transport infrastructure used by a rather well known and loved cocoa and chocolate manufacturer.
There’s a long way to go yet, but we’ve been exploring these capitals as an initial starting point for a typeface family. We’ll keep you up to date as this develops:
Here’s the second part of our Henrician pre-release showcase. Today’s there’s a book cover design featuring none other than His Late Majesty, King Henry VIII. We also have two travel posters, for rail and sea travel.
We’ve just sent Henrician off to our resellers, so we thought we’d share a few more pieces that show it in action. We have a suitably Tudor banquet menu to start with- actually this is only part of a menu, being a list of some of the requisites for the starter course of one of Henry VIII’sbanquets (!). The text shown over the Tower of London appeared at the start of a film, that great comedy epic(!) Carry on Henry. Finally, we have a poster inviting us to take a train to the lovely Medieval town of Chester.
Here are three more test pieces showing off the Henrecian family, as we refine our letterforms, spacing and kerning. It’s interesting to note that a design like this, done in a deliberate ‘revival’ style, is equality at home in poster work inspired by many different periods- as we see here with a 1950s styled travel poster, a design inspired by the early days of motoring and a poster for the Royal York hotel in splendid 1930s style.
