KEITH TRICKER. A TYPOGRAPHER’S TALE

My first introduction to typography, barring a kid’s set of ABC building blocks, was the pocket money purchase of a John Bull Printing Outfit, a sort of do-it-yourself rubber stamp kit with rubber characters, tweezers and an ink pad. I used it to create a business card which proclaimed me as leader of our neighbourhood gang, and learned my first lesson in the authority of type: people will believe anything they see in print!

4square 4square

Strength, solidity and style’ neatly encapsulate 4square, a font that combines a sturdy industrial feel with smooth, streamlined contours. It’s definitely got some Microgramma in its DNA, although the proportions are squarer and the letter forms more angular. Designing it has been an exercise in ‘squaring the circle’; to see how close the letter form could approach to a rectangle whilst retaining its curves. The result is a pleasantly softened effect reminiscent of a worn pebble.

Pagoda

Pagoda Pagoda

This display font has an oriental character reminiscent of brush stroke calligraphy and all things Japanese. My original working title for this font was ‘Spanner’, because the lower case ‘c’, with which the design began, looked rather like the head of a spanner. I originally had in mind something more mechanical, but as it evolved and developed the font itself obviously had other ideas!

Joe Cool

Joe Cool Joe Cool

Joe Cool is a bold geometric sans with minimal counters designed to achieve the maximum weight, solidity and impact on the page. Joe Cool Extended was actually created first, then it seemed like a good idea to add progressively more compact versions for added variety and versatility. See also Gravitas, my Bauhaus inspired font family which explores similar territory.

Hollywood Hills

1 font from $35.00
Hollywood Hills Hollywood Hills

Inspired by that iconic sign in the Hollywood Hills, this font is a must for film buffs, movie lovers and designers who want to bring a bit of big screen glamour to their projects. It’s a caps only face, but by using the upper and lower case keys type can be set above or below the base line, thus creating the signature stagger effect. Skyline and building top signs are fairly common on the European continent, and Hollywood Hills can also be used to create dramatic city nightscapes – especially when used together with neon style fonts like Bebopalula Outline or Anvil Outline.

Mechanoid Mechanoid

Mechanoid is a machine age font: crisp, clean, bold and unadorned, yet with a distinctive character of its own. As the name suggests it is well suited to engineering or technological themes, yet versatile enough for universal applications.

Calypso Calypso

Calypso was inspired by the dance of the same name, and its flowing lines suggest the rhythms of Caribbean / Latin American music. Ideal for tourist literature, album sleeve art, packaged foods or other products with a Caribbean / Latin flavor.

Charta Charta

The Charta family of fonts draws its inspiration from the letter styles used in early manuscripts and printed books, such as Magna Carta and the Gutenberg Bible. It is a modern interpretation - rather than a slavish copy - of such works and a nod to the pioneers who founded our craft. Charta is also remarkably versatile: it’s equally at home in a traditional or modern context and, as the graphic examples here demonstrate, it can be used for a wide range of applications from an automobile badge to a newspaper masthead and from a fashion label to a candy bar wrapper.

Rock Face Rock Face

Rock Face was inspired by a crude but effective home made sign I came across advertising a garage sale. The lettering was created using sticky black insulation tape which, like a child’s drawing, had a certain naive charm. The type design presented here is obviously more considered, but I like to think it has the same raw dynamism.
