A Family in Seven Faces, or Ready For Colour OpenType?

Here’s a sampling of the full ‘Greene and Hollins’ typeface family.  We’ve designed all seven typefaces with uniform metrics, to facilitate (for the moment) multi-coloured typography by overlaying different typefaces.

In the fullness of time we may also release these as multi-coloured OpenType typefaces.  This is technically possible to do now, but until there is worthwhile application support we really don’t think there’s much point in so doing.  Also, it has to be admitted that none of our resellers are set up to sell such exotica yet…so far as we know.

It will be interesting to see if this idea of typefaces in pre-defined colour selections takes off.  In reality this actually makes us think our current ‘overlay’ solution is actually superior, even if it is more work.  At least this way, the designer can choose the colours…
