Westward Ho!

Great Western Railway ‘Saint’ Class Express locomotive, No.171 ‘Albion’ sets out for the west country, circa 1912.  THis is another exploration of the use of the iPad Pro as a tool for ‘serious’ illustration.
Alright, I know it’s not a font, but great fun to do, and it probably will appear in future type specimens…

Ringing the Changes

An enjoyable exercise in imagining the same poster with different typography, all drawn from the Greater Albion collection. We hope our readers enjoy looking through the results as much as we did creating them!

Display Hatched

We’re getting ready to dispatch three new releases in the next fe days.  One of these is the Opentype feature Rich ‘Signwriter Standard’.  Another is ‘Display Hatched’ designed as a complement to Signwriter Standard, but also a versatile display face in its own right, and previewed here for the first time.  The third new release is … a surprise for the moment, having not been previewed as yet, and something of a design departure for Greater Albion, so watch this space.

Also waiting in the wings are Ledbury, Flinscher and Netherland Perpendicular, so a lot to look out for.  In the meantime, here’s a first look at ‘Display Hatched’:
