Showcasing Landsdowne Commercial


‘Landsdowne Commercial’ is a development of Paul Lloyd’s earlier public domain release, ‘Landsdowne’.  All glyphs have been completely redrawn and refined.  An extensive range of stylistic alternates and ligatures have been added, as well as a completely new bold face and several forms of numerals.  Landsdowne commercial is ideal for period-inspired design work, such as posters and book covers as well for clear elegant communications.  I think this perhaps demonstrates that a typeface, like so many other things, is never truly finished, just progressed to a standard acceptable to its designer at that time.

Testing Wellmere Sans

We’ve been having fun trying out Wellmere Sans.  Here’s a selection of the resulting pieces with which we are most pleased.  Hopefully we’ll be sending Wellmere (along with Landsdowne and perhaps couple of other things) of to Myfonts and Fontspring soon.  It does seem to have been a while since we dispatched anything, but it’s been a very busy couple of months…

Progress, At Last…

It has been a quiet week on this site this week, which as usual denotes a busy week elsewhere drawing attention away from Greater Albion.  None the less, after several weeks there is some progress to report on one of our ongoing projects.  Landsdowne Commercial regular is nearing completion, and here’s a very small sampling of it in its current form.

Landsdowne-Commercial3As with all of our typefaces which have the word ‘Commericial’ in their name, this is an refined and enhanced rerelease of one of my earlier freeware typefaces.  A lot has changed and developed, including an extensive character set, a wide range of ligatures, as well as stylistic alternates and small capitals, but at it’s heart this remains the earlier Landsdowne design.  More previews soon…
