Deco Metro is a 1920s and 30s inspired display family, ideal for posters, banners, book covers and other promotional work. Two weights, regular (with an incised centre line) and bold (without the centre line) are offered. The family has an extensive range of features including discretionary ligatures, old-style numerals, Swash Letter and numeral forms, small capitals, Roman numerals and fractions.
Nationale is inspired by the lettering of early 20th century share certificates and bonds. It includes a complete set of stylistic alternates for all letter forms, and two sizes of numerals. National speaks of the steam age, and the age of traditional design and engineering, when aesthetic concerns mattered just as much as function. Bring a touch of the elegant past to your work with Nationale.
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 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…
Our Thurbrooke Family has now launched on Myfonts and on Fontspring.
Thurbrooke is an early 20th century inspired display family, offering two sizes of Roman capitals. Five typefaces are offered in the Thurbrooke family. The Regular face is shaded in horizontally engraved lines and suggests something of vintage advertising captions. A reversed ‘Reverso’ face, transposing black and white space is offered, as is a ‘Black’ face with solid letterforms. The remaining two faces are a bit more specialised. Thurbrooke ‘Banner’ is the latest in our popular line of masthead or cartouche faces-very impressive for banner headings. Thurbrooke Initials is a set of initial capitals, which blend in perfectly with Thurbrooke Reverso, or which also make splendid drop capitals. Why not explore some (or all) of the elements of the Thurbrooke family today, and introduce some early 20th century inspired colour to your work?
