An idea for a future font design we’ve been playing with…
Eurobia is a family of two typefaces – Regular and Plain. They are display faces with a strongly European feel and a strong flavour of the 1920s. My suggestion would be to use them for poster or banner work, or packaging or cover design, with the heading text set in Eurasia Regular and subsidiary text set in Eurobia plain.
Garstang Engraved is othe latest in Greater Albion ‘s series of ‘wood type’ inspired fonts. Garstang Engraved is a hand-cut Roman, suggesting the late Victorian era, but the type of thing that continued in use well into the twentieth century. If you want a title face that has versatility and suggests a past history, as well as the art of finely cut wood type, then this is it!
Greater Albion always releases a Black letter each year, hopefully well before the Christmas seas (which we seem to have managed this year – September). There is something about this year’s project which suggests a caste portcullis to us. Why not visit ye olde world in your next designer project?
Rotham Industria. Stylised lettering for industrial flavoured projects. Imagine, if you will, letters shaped from metal tube, or perhaps from a solid rod, or perhaps made from brass handrails? You get the idea. A stylised and fun typeface for those occasions where you want to suggest an engineering influence.
