Some test pieces and draft poster specimens for Myfonts. Nearly there…
Fargo Tuscan is the first of seven typefaces exploring the decorative possibilities of the Tuscan letter form, all of which are releasing in 2017. It’s the most European of the seven- it’s a Mid-Victorian inspired display face which would have been (and is) at home on either side of the Atlantic, unlike some of the others in this batch of Tuscan faces which are distinctly ‘trans-Atlantic’ (we know, that depends on your point of view but we are Greater ALBION Typefounders after all) in flavour. Fargo Tuscan is replete with decorative features, including Swash Capitals, alternate numeric forms and stylistic alternates ideal for the beginning and ending of words.
Kinver owes it’s inspiration to the masthead of a 19th century handbill. It is designed to particularly complement our extensive ‘Imperial Granum’ typeface family. Bring the spirit of Victorian flair to your next design project!
Nationale is inspired by the lettering of early 20th century share certificates and bonds. It includes a complete set of stylistic alternates for all letter forms, and two sizes of numerals. National speaks of the steam age, and the age of traditional design and engineering, when aesthetic concerns mattered just as much as function. Bring a touch of the elegant past to your work with Nationale.
Our Beeching family is designed specifically for use in making clear and legible signage. There are six typefaces in the family, all available for download and purchase right now.
Beeching is a family of six typefaces designed to combine extreme legibility with a hint of retrospective character. It is inspired by the lettering used in the Leslie Green designed stations of the London Underground and is as up to date today as it was the day those stations opened. The Beeching faces (Regular, Bold, Small Capitals, Small Capitals Bold, Shadowed and Small Capitals Shadowed) are ideal for use in large scale signage that needs to be seen over long distances. We feel the family provides a clear demonstration that traditional details, such as serifs and ligatures serve to enhance legibility.
