Harbour Harbour

Harbour is a clash of Latin and Germanic typestyles - two conflicting letterforms, culturally, politically and aesthetically. Latin letterforms have a geometric base, blackletter types are calligraphic. Harbour takes calligraphic forms that derive from writing with quills, but is a typeface that is clearly drawn‚ rather than written‚ to produce graphic, dynamic letterforms.

Lily™ Lily™

As with all our typefaces, we are searching for a point of difference, something that separates them from their surroundings. The idea of a seriffed script typeface is interesting, as the two are very separate ideas, certainly in calligraphic script lettering where serifs would interrupt the flow of writing. The typeface should retain a suggestion of having been written, or being possible to write. It should have a sense of formality, and as it was named after my daughter a beauty or specialness, but expressed in an original way.

Aspic™

2 fonts from $76.00
Aspic™ Aspic™

One of three typefaces drawn from a mix of influences including signwriting, the brush-style typography of cereal packets or toilet rolls, the calligraphy of Berthold Wolpe. All have an emphasis on an expressive digitally-derived interpretation of hand painted or brushed lettering. There was a ‘hard’, 'script and this ‘soft’ version, expressing this idea in three different ways. This typeface references brushed signwritten lettering.

Whereas blackletter types were hand written, Text letterforms are drawn using a series of graphic shapes that slot together in a series of permutations, one set for lower case and another for the upper case. As the link between the method of construction of the letterforms has been removed from the appearance (the quill pen with which they were written resulting in the angle and sharp stresses) there is no logic for these stylistic elements to work in any set way. As this fundamental rule of the blackletter style has been removed the typeface has become something other than a typical or derivative blackletter font.
