Showcasing Chequers

Chequers_Poster2

Chequers was inspired by the all-capitals lettering seen on a 1920s magazine cover. It is a family of six small-serifed display faces, including a selection of stylistic alternates. It is one of those happy designs which sits happily in design work inspired by a range of periods.  Not quite ‘timeless’ but ‘time flexible’.

New Releases Released…

We’re pleases to announce the launch of our two latest releases, Balbione and Chequers on Myfonts and on Fontspring.

Baldione

Baldione is a highly stylised variation upon a classic Didone typeface, incorporating a globular decorative ‘ball’ or ‘blob’ in each character’s design. The result has a feel of the 1970s about it somehow and works well in poster and advertising designs with a hint of the outré’ about them. Balidone includes an extensive range of ligatures and stylistic alternates.

Chequers in Action

Here’s a sampling of test pieces, showing off our new Chequers family.  We’ve tried to show all six typefaces in the family in a range of contexts.  Chequers (and Baldione) should go off to our resellers any moment now.
