An enjoyable exercise in imagining the same poster with different typography, all drawn from the Greater Albion collection. We hope our readers enjoy looking through the results as much as we did creating them!
Classic Travel Posters reimagined with typography Employing the Belhampton family.
Whitehaven (the name inspired by the residence of a well-known fictional Belgian detective) was one of our earlier typeface families. We’ve been having a little typographic fun with it…
Deco Metro is a 1920s and 30s inspired display family, ideal for posters, banners, book covers and other promotional work. Two weights, regular (with an incised centre line) and bold (without the centre line) are offered. The family has an extensive range of features including discretionary ligatures, old-style numerals, Swash Letter and numeral forms, small capitals, Roman numerals and fractions.
Couldn’t resist that alliterative title!
The Flinscher family contains twenty display typefaces, in weights that vary from light to black, and widths that extend from condensed to expanded. The family’s design inspiration traces its roots to the early portion of the twentieth century. In essence, it is a calligraphic script typeface family with blackletter influences. The letter forms are decorative and distinctive, yet clear and easy to read, and in use set up a regular rhythm that leads the eye from character to character. The Flinscher typefaces are well suited to design work that needs to combine formality with fun. Just the thing for a certificate or a book cover!
