Two New Releases on Fontspring

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.

Albia Nova Should release soon ofter Spargo, which has now been sent off to our resellers.

Retro Sci-Fi Design

We’ve been having a little fun experimenting with some of our typefaces and seeing how they lend themselves to some good old-fashioned science fiction inspired design.  Here are some of the better results:

Anyone for a good old-fashioned sci-fi paperback cover? Movella and Magdalene Sans take us to the twin planet of death.

Federal Streamliner invites us to the moon’s first city.

Pardon the slightly racy image, but who could resist Xenethia’s Martian adventures, as promoted by Zenia?

Movella invites us to venture into the stratosphere.

Slatterine does its bit to promote Spaceport 1 London.
