Flinscher Family Launched on Myfonts

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!

Why not experiment with it today?

Adantine Revisted…

Adantine_poster

Adantine offers the opportunity to bring Victorian Elegance and Character to modern design work. It is inspired by the hand-lettered captions often seen on old sepia-toned postcards, but also distilles some of its spirit from 19th century advertising cuts. Adantine is offered in regular and text faces, as well as all and small Capitals forms with purpose made swashed capitals, and in a decorative embossed form. It can be used to set small amounts of text, as well as for headings and display purposes. Adantine offers the chance to bring steam-age elegance to present day design projects.

Forthcoming Releases II – Kinver

Here’s another design nearing release.  This time it’s one we’ve not previewed before.

Kinver is inspired by lettering on a 19th century trade card which we found recently, and is what we might call a ‘Super summas’ Roman display face, which we had great fun working on.

Forthcoming Releases I – Joyvrie

We’ve previewed aspects of our Joyvrie project here previously.  If our readers remember, this design is inspired by some rather appealing lettering on a Grocer’s blackboard.  It’s now nearing release, so here’s a sampling of Joyvrie in action:

Speeding With ‘Par Avion’

One of our forthcoming projects is (at least for the moment) dubbed ‘Par Avion II’ and will consist in large measure of adding lower case letterforms to the original ‘Par Avion’ design.  This was suggested by Ian Reid, regular reader and commenter here- thank you Ian!  In the meantime, here are some posters employing the original design…
