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.

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.

This face was recommended to me by Mark Solsburg, president of FontHaus. At first I was a bit reluctant to revive it, if for no other reason than Frederic Goudy’s admission that he created this design “in a moment of typographic weakness.” However, I put the sample that Mark sent me up on my bulletin board, and over a period of time, it grew on me. It finally got to the point that I had to recreate the face, and from the response that I’ve gotten, I’m glad I did! Uppercase only with numerals and punctuation.
