Doge’s Darker is one of a set of four typefaces, the others being Doge’s Delight, Doge’s Banner and Doge’s Venezia. Together they make up a splendid family of Victorian inspired Tuscan faces, allowing for an integrated design approach.
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’.
