New on Fontspring

Our three latest completed projects, Greene and Hollins, Henry VII, and Uncia Black have just released on Fontspring.  We thought it would be an interesting comparison to use each of them in turn in the same poster design, to see how each in turn ‘works’.

In fact, we find that, at lest in this particular application, they all have a certain appeal.  There again, maybe we’re just seeing things through our own eyes.  It is with noting that the typesetting in each case is tailored to take advantage of the particular attributes in each case- wider tracking for Uncia Black in the word ‘Peterborough’, the word ‘Travel’ is set slightly off-centre in the presentation of ‘Peterborough’ (and two typefaces from the family are employed for a subtle colour effect) whilst ‘PETERBOROUGH’ is set all in capitals in using ‘Henry VII’.

  1. To my amateur eye, both Greene & Hollins and Henry VII suit this traditional kind of poster style very well, but I’m less impressed (in the present context, anyway) by Uncia, which seems a bit reminiscent of faux-rustic furniture homemade with knobbly branches – not such a good match for an imposing architectural image.

    • I must admit that “Uncia Black” is by way of being a somewhat experimental design. Great fun to work on, but I have struggled to find examples of possible to practical uses to which it might be put. While I like to think that it has a certain charm, it probably isn’t the most natural complement to imposing English perpendicular architecture. Still, you never know what someone else might think of, and I do rather like the idea of that sort of faux-rustic furniture…hmmm…
