Display Hatched

We’re getting ready to dispatch three new releases in the next fe days.  One of these is the Opentype feature Rich ‘Signwriter Standard’.  Another is ‘Display Hatched’ designed as a complement to Signwriter Standard, but also a versatile display face in its own right, and previewed here for the first time.  The third new release is … a surprise for the moment, having not been previewed as yet, and something of a design departure for Greater Albion, so watch this space.

Also waiting in the wings are Ledbury, Flinscher and Netherland Perpendicular, so a lot to look out for.  In the meantime, here’s a first look at ‘Display Hatched’:

Eight New Releases, Now on Myfonts – Part 8

Doge's_Darker_Poster2

Doge’s Darker is one of a set of four typefaces, the others being Doge’s Delight, Doge’s Banner and Doge’s Venezia. Together they make up a splendid family of Victorian inspired Tuscan faces, allowing for an integrated design approach.

Just Released

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.
