About this font family
Portmeirion No.6 started life as an experiment by our designer, who was exploring the possibilities of a completely 'over-the-top' display Roman face, bringing in elements of Tuscan and ‘Circus’ design, along with anything else he felt like. He’s instilled a little more discipline in the finished result...but just ever so little. We have Fred Stevens, a regular reader of our website to thank for the name. He’s comment on seeing a preview of the design was ‘Over the top, Italianesque decorative and intriguing. add some 60’s TV and voila Portmeirion.’ Why No.6-well you'd need to know a bit about 1960s television to understand that, but we'll give you a hint...“Where am I?”...“In the village”.
