Spillsbury Released on Myfonts.com

Spillsbury (released now on Myfonts)  was inspired by some examples of 1920s signwriting (principally seen on the side of some vintage vans-good thing they were in a photograph and not on the move!).

Spillsbury draws inspiration from these sources to provide a unique combination of legibility and flair, which echoes the charm of advertising and publicity material from the halcyon days of the 1920s. A basic range of four display faces os offered – Regular, Plain (not all that plain really!), Shaded and Shadowed.

In a new departure for Greater Albion, three pairs of ‘Duo’ faces are also offered. These are designed to be used in pairs-and only sold on that basis for little more than the cost of a single face-to provide for two-coloured typographic design, enabling the recreation of those evocative two coloured blocked lettering styles that were used to such good effect in the past.

Take a trip back to more colourful times today with Spillsbury!

 

Portello and Paget Released

Portello and Paget have now been released through Fontspring and Myfonts.

 

Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces.  It’s a family of three ‘all capital’ faces.  A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic – with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text – which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look.  It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility.  It’s ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.  Why not give your work the flair of colourful 19th century commercial design today?

Paget is a modern exploration of Tuscan design.  Here you’ll find simple geometric outlines with an ‘Arts and Craft’ charm about them.  Paget is beautifully clear and easy to read, but offers a distinctive charm that conventional sans serif and serif faces don’t.  Paget is offered in regular and oblique forms and is an ideal way to merge tradition and all that is new and fresh in your designs.

All the ‘P’s – Paget and Portello Near Release

We’ve just dispatched Paget and Portello to our resellers, so they should be released soon.  In the meantime we thought a look at a couple of our ‘test pieces where we put the new typefaces to work might be of interest.

Firstly, Paget takes us back to the heady days of the 30s, and steam powered streamline era travel, as we’re invited to take a trip on the ‘Coronation Scot’.

Secondly, Portello takes back to the days when the circus was fun!  No wild animals were harmed in making this poster…

Worthing Released on Myfonts

Worthing aims to combine Victorian charm with modern-day requirements for legibility and clarity, and we hope, demonstrates that traditional elegance still has its place in the modern world. Meanwhile, for those who are curious about the naming of our fonts, Mr Lloyd our designer was reading Mr Wells (H. G.) War of the Worlds recently. No doubt some of you will remember the part that Worthing in Sussex played in that story.

Worthing is offered in three styles: regular, alternate and shaded. It’s ideal for Victorian and Edwardian era inspired design work, posters and signage, as well as for book covers, chapter headings and so forth.  Click on the banner above to try Worthing out for yourself.  Worthing will be offered at a 35% discount until Christmas.
