Pottering once again, this time with members of Greater Albion’s ‘Haymer’ family, specifically ‘Haymer Inline’ and ‘Haymer Small Caps Inline’. I particularly like these in-line letter forms for their touch of ‘display’ without ostentation, and for the carefully rounded, and sometimes selectively asymmetric finals.
Our four latest typeface families have now released on Fontspring and on Myfonts. Here are a few more sample images displaying Landsdowne Commerical,Wellmere Sans, Friendly Shaded Sans and Trivette. We know these four projects have taken a while to come to fruition, but we think they are worth the wait.
‘Landsdowne Commercial’ is a development of one of our designer’s earlier public domain releases, ‘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.
Wellmere Sans is humanist a ‘sans serif’ typeface combining distinctive character with easy legibility. The emphasis here is on elegant simplicity and clarity. No alternate forms, no ligatures, just good simple design and elegance giving clarity and ease of communication. Ideal for timeless presentation of information, signs, posters, computer displays and so forth.
‘Friendly Shaded Sans’ is just what the name says. It’s a chubby and cheerful Sans Serif typeface that is ideal for poster work, headings and informal design generally.
Trivette is an ‘All Capitals’ calligraphic display face, where all upright strokes are rendered as curves and where everything approaching the vertical are rendered in threes. That’s probably as clear as mud, but the results combine charm and legibility with a decorative period air. Recommended for poster work where a sense of dignified fun is important.
Out letterpress Roman family, Bronzetti, is currently offered on myfonts.com at a 35% discount. The Bronzetti family of 22 text typefaces combines modern requirements for legibility and readability with the charm of traditional Roman faces in the spirit of those carefully constructed by small scale quality foundries such as the Kelmscott and Vale presses. In short, Bronzetti is traditional letterpress meets modern publishing, offering a real opportunity to make your material stand out from today’s ‘run of the mill’ crowd. The range of typefaces on offer includes five widths of type, as well as small capitals and italic forms and regular and bold weights.
Here’s the third part of our Bertoni showcase. We’ve continued the travel theme today, starting out in Verona, then heading for Venice via Canterbury…not the msot direct route, we know 🙂 There again, a straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it’s far from the most interesting….
