Albia Nova Catalogue Pages

Albia Nova was the first of Greater Albion’s occasional forays into ‘Science Fiction’ inspired typefaces.  There’s a distinct overtone of 1950s futuristic design about this typeface.  The catalogue pages are accessible here.

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.

The Benefits of Time For Reflection

We’ve done some more work on Albia Nova, our futuristic design and something of a new departure for us.  We think it’s benefitted substantially from further development, keeping its futuristic air but gaining considerably in legibility and useability.  Just scroll down to see the evolution between this latest sketch and the one we published previously.
