Jason Castle

Jason Castle has had a love for books and lettering ever since he could read (and write). Noticing his fascination for what one teacher considered “ostentatious” handwriting, around the age of 10, Jason’s father taught him an elaborate form of calligraphy known as copperplate script (which much later became the inspiration for his digital font by that name). In his twenties — during what he calls his “medieval period” — Jason was performing medieval music and studying lettering and illumination of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Jason later became a computer programmer for many years, but needing a more creative outlet, eventually combined his love of computers with that of typography and started creating digital fonts. Not surprisingly, his first attempt was a face inspired by the Middle Ages, Goudy Text. While keeping his day job, Jason continued to create fonts for fun, and before long started getting commissions to digitize old typefaces, mostly from the art deco period. Eventually quitting his day job, Jason dedicated himself full-time to digital type design, reviving antique typefaces as well as creating original designs. More recent work includes custom type design for clients such as S&W Foods, Chevron, and Shiseido. A native Californian, Jason is currently studying psychology at Dominican University of California. He looks forward to finishing his degree and, hopefully, finding time to create many more typefaces.

Copperplate Script™ Copperplate Script™

One of the more elegant script fonts available, this design is based on calligraphic handwriting called “Copperplate” because of the copper plates that it was etched into for reproduction. This face is not related to Copperplate [Gothic] by the American type designer, F.W. Goudy. The name Copperplate comes from the fact that writing masters used to hand-write their books and then send them to an engraver who recreated all the subtle details onto copper plates, which where then used to print the handwriting books.

Over the years I have bought many books and music CDs in persuit of my passion for African and Latin (and especially Afro-Latin) cultures. I've noticed that a great number of these books and CDs feature either of two popular display fonts that are, in my opinion, very much overused. As an alternative, I designed Tambor. The Tambor family includes seven styles.

Another one of those faces that caught my eye in one of my art deco type books, and I wanted it. After I finished the face, I noticed that there is a more clean-cut version of this face in digital format, but my version retains more of the funkiness of the original drawings.

This elegant typeface was suggested to me by type critic Daniel Will-Harris.

Goudy Trajan Pro™ Goudy Trajan Pro™

Goudy Trajan Pro is based on the drawings by F.W. Goudy of his rendition of the capital letters inscribed on the Trajan column in Rome, rather than on his subsequent metal type, Trajan (Title), released in 1930. Goudy Trajan Pro includes almost 1500 glyphs in each of three weights, including: uppercase, alternates, swash caps, small caps, vertically centered small(er) caps, dozens of fleurons, and much more. Supports Latin, Cyrillic and modern Greek scripts. Many thanks to Krassen Krestev, Sergiy Tkachenko, and Adam Twardoch for their suggestions for improving the Cyrillic glyphs; and to Alex Sheldon for his suggestions for swash caps and improved OpenType features.
