Here’s something we haven’t shown before, another project nearing completion. After ages trying to think of a name for this one, we thought, why not simply name it what it was? Hence it’s simply “Big Friendly Sans…
Alfrine is a project we’ve had ‘on the back burner’ for quite some time, though we don’t think we’ve presented it here before. In one of those periodic burst of energy that tends to characterise our operations…or is that periodic busts of time left by our day jobs(?) it’s finally getting near completion.
So, introducing ‘Alfrine’ an oblique San face (two faces actually) with delightful feeling of energy and motion about them. Alfrine includes an extensive range of ligatures and works well when used for ‘all-caps’ lettering.
Our two latest releases have just launched on Fontspring.
Bluebottle is a lively fun family of typefaces, a boisterous fun design, Bluebottle brings a distinctive cheerful character where ever it’s used. Use Bluebottle to bring life and fun wherever you will.
Solidarius is a chubby, friendly typeface which captures the innate legibility of well done felt-tip marker lettering. It’s ideal for any poster needing that ‘hand-lettered’ look combined with optimum legibility.
Albia Nova is a bit of a new departure for Greater Albion-an unashamedly futuristic typeface. It was originally developed for a friend of ours-a set designed who needed some lettering on props for a science fiction play-the brief was to evolve conventional letter forms and speculate as to what they may look like in the future. As released Albia Nova is a more refined version of this idea, placing a bit more emphasis on readability (today) over evolution of the letterforms. The result is good for giving design projects a futuristic feel, but also has something of the 1970s and 1980s about it.
Leibix, inspired by a jolly trademark of the past, is a fun family of five typefaces which transcends different eras of the past. It has elements of the 1920s in its design, but is equally at home with projects having a 1970s theme of an up to the minute modern one. Use it for eye catching cartoon captions, in posters of anywhere else a casual impact is required.
