Something Happening At Last!

Eurobia is a family of two typefaces – Regular and Plain.  They are display faces with a strongly European feel and a strong flavour of the 1920s. My suggestion would be to use them for poster or banner work, or packaging or cover design, with the heading text set in Eurasia Regular and subsidiary text set in Eurobia plain. 

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.

Another Project On The Way

At the moment we seem to have three projects playing leapfrog in our development queue (and a fourth one playing at the back of our minds, but that’s another story…).  We’ve already shown you two of these, Fitzgerald inspired by a sign over a Dublin bar and an as yet unnamed family (ideas anyone?) based on Roman lettering engraved in a brass plaque.

Here’s the third idea, which we’re presently calling ‘Spillsbury’ and which is inspired on traditional sign writer’s shaded lettering.

High Style Elegance Discounted

Bertoni is a high contrast Didone family of twenty faces, which combines extreme legibility with distinctive character.  It is able to hold its own in modern usage while having features rooted in a deep period charm.  The family includes two widths as well as two weights.  Bertoni regular, bold and wide are small capitals faces ideal for posters, book covers, packaging and signage.  The text faces are body faces which form the ideal accompaniment.  For more distinctive features, the Title, Capitals (all capitals, but in two forms) and Flamboyant faces are ideal.  Bertoni offers a blend of the modern with classical revivalist charm which makes it up to the minute and never out of place.  The family is extensive enough to form the foundation of a commercial house style, but can also lend an element of character in single usage.

By popular request, we’re offering our popular Bertoni family of 20 faces at a substantial 40% discount on Myfonts.  Here are some of examples of Bertoni in use:

Arkwright and Bonaventure Released

W e’re pleased to announce that Arkwright and Bonaventure are now released at a 30% introductory discount on Myfonts.com.

Coming Attractions

Here are some samples of our next two releases in action:

Bonaventure

Bonaventure is a Roman display family full of the spirit of the Art Nouveau era, and joins our popular related group of families which also includes Bonning, Bonnington and BonaVia.  Three weights will be offered, including a shadowed black form, in a choice of three widths: regular, condensed and Expanded.  It’s the ideal family for signage with a period feel, as well as for posters, headings and certificates.  A combination of Bonaventure with Bonning and its other related faces will bring a harmonious design ethos to any project.

Arkwright

Arkwright, named for a well known fictional shopkeeper who kept his shop open all hours is inspired by traditional British (and transatlantic) shop signage.  It is a spiritual companion and ideal companion to our more elaborate Granville family.  Arkwright is offered in Regular and bold weights and a more decorative ‘Grand’ form.  These faces are especially suitable for posters, period advertising, Chapter headings and signage.

Three New Releases

Bertoni, “Pardon Me Boy!” and Woodruff -already previewed on our blog- have now been released on Myfonts.com.

Twenty Faces of the Bertoni Family

Bertoni is now nearing release, so we thought people might like a preview of the family in full-all 20 faces of it!  Here’s some introductory blurb:
