Albia Nova Catalogue Pages

Albia Nova was the first of Greater Albion’s occasional forays into ‘Science Fiction’ inspired typefaces.  There’s a distinct overtone of 1950s futuristic design about this typeface.  The catalogue pages are accessible here.

Flexibility

We always take a pride in the flexibility of our typeface designs, as well as their essential character of legibility.  We would generally see Bertoni as a display family, but we decided to try a little experiment, using the family to typeset a few pages of text from a novel.  We were rather pleased with the results of this and decided to post a sampling of the results here….

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.
