what Are We Up To?

We’ve been pretty quiet on here for the last week or so, but that’s we’re working on a couple of particular projects.  One is Thoroughbrooke, which we’ve already previewed on here.  The other is…something completely different.  We’re not going to say jut what yet, but we will post a small preview and see if anyone can guess.  any ideas (see below)?

Two New Releases on Fontspring

Albia Nova is a bit of a new departure for Greater Albion-an unashamedly futuristic typeface. It was originally developed for a friend of ours-a set designed who needed some lettering on props for a science fiction play-the brief was to evolve conventional letter forms and speculate as to what they may look like in the future. As released Albia Nova is a more refined version of this idea, placing a bit more emphasis on readability (today) over evolution of the letterforms. The result is good for giving design projects a futuristic feel, but also has something of the 1970s and 1980s about it.

Leibix, inspired by a jolly trademark of the past, is a fun family of five typefaces which transcends different eras of the past. It has elements of the 1920s in its design, but is equally at home with projects having a 1970s theme of an up to the minute modern one. Use it for eye catching cartoon captions, in posters of anywhere else a casual impact is required.

Now For something Completely Different

A friend of ours was designing some props for a science fiction play, and asked us if we could design a ‘far future’ alphabet.  As regular readers will know this is quite outside the theme of our usual designs, but we thought we’d give it a go…  Here are some of our design sketches.
