Showcasing the Clementhorpe Family

We thought it was time to revisit one of our earlier designs, with some new specimen pieces and a few old favourites re-presented.

Clementhorpe is inspired by the lettering on an early 20th century enamel advertisement-for chocolate. From the dozen or so hand drawn letters found in that source Greater Albion Typefounders have constructed a family of Roman faces for display and text work, with bold weights, an italic form as well as condensed, small capital and title forms, all preserving the fun of their inspiration.

Incidentally, one member of the Clementhorpe family is offered free of charge at Myfonts.

Endymion and Magdalene Sans Now Released on Fontspring

Fontspring has now joined Myfonts.com in releasing Endymion and Magdalene Sans.

Two New Releases on Myfonts.Com

Endymion and Magdalene Sans have now released on Myfonts.com.  Click on the banners below to try them out there.

Endymion is a Tuscan display face that speaks of traditional fairgrounds and circuses, or 19th century poster design and even of the wild west. Its name derives from its ogee curves, which have been likened to the bluebell (Endymion) flower.  Why not bring a sense of lively fun to your next design project with Endymion?

Magdalene is a classically designed sans-serif face for the 21st century. It’s designed to offer clear and immediately legible lettering for signage and poster use which still has a touch of character and elegance about it. Magdalene is also ideal for the display of web pages and legible text on small LCD panels. Use Magdalene to combine traditional design attributes with modern technology.

Our Three Newest Releases…

Here are some more examples of our latest releases in action- all are currently being offered at introductory discount prices on Myfonts.com.

Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an ‘All-Capitals’ face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.

Luscombe is a boisterous and lively display face, recalling the shaded and outlined faced much beloved of 1920s poster and advertising artists, while offering a regularity of outline that those faces often did not achieve. Itís ideal for poster and display work, or for signage with a subtle period feel. Mix the two faces to add emphasis where it’s needed.

 

Zenia, offered in regular and bold weights is a homage to the streamline era of the later 1930s. It’s a distinctive display family, glyphic yet still intuitive and easy to read. Use it anywhere you want that 30’s streamlined feel, or perhaps in science fiction inspired work particularly those that have a ‘past inspired future’ feel…
