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.

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’.

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.

Three New Releases on Fontspring…

Three of our latest projects, Alfrere Banner, Barollo and Lugano have just launched on Fontspring.  All three projects will have been familiar to our regular readers over the last few months (indeed, days, in one case) but here are some fresh images as a short reminder.  We seem to have a wheeled transport theme on our mind just lately…

Bonlivet Releases

The Bonlivet typeface is now available through Myfonts and Fontspring.

Bonlivet is an all capitals display face, which starts from Roman letter forms and pushes them into wild decorative extravagance. There is a somewhat early 20th century feel to this, but really it’s just a bit of good fun, with a hint of elegance thrown in.
