In 1994, Christopher Slye decided to design Elmhurst as the best way to learn something about type.“I thought that a typeface intended for continuous text would be the most challenging to design,” he recalls, “I assumed it would offer the best learning experience.”
He attempted a unique and personal design that would remain familiar, usable and versatile; the design became a five-part series, named for the street where he grew up.
Among other uses, Elmhurst is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
