This fanciful typeface was designed by resident Letraset designer Michael Gills and is based on the famous French Ronde script. Created entirely on screen, Fling has a precise, clinical appearance. The capitals are for initialling purposes only and support a lowercase that is rich in alternative and ligatured letterforms. Also included is a host of attractive embellishment devices. An ideal choice for work requiring the use of a highly legible script.
The Charlotte Sans family of typefaces was designed specifically to co-ordinate with Charlotte roman typefaces in style, weight, and color. Designer Michael Gills created Charlotte Sans on screen with FontStudio software, and has achieved a perfect balance between the humanistic qualities of Gill Sans and the evenness of color in the Frutiger series. Highly versatile on its own, and compatible with its roman counterpart, the Charlotte Sans family offers a spectrum of choices for more creative typographic expression.
Functionality with style is the keynote of Gilgamesh, the latest text typeface family from the cultured hand of British designer, Michael Gills. Based largely on Gills' calligraphic experiments, Gilgamesh offers the discerning typographer everything - slightly narrower-than-normal letterforms for economy of space, a top-left, bottom-right serif formation on the lowercase for close letterspacing in larger point sizes, and a crisp, angular italic that will give emphasis to your typographic design. Named after a poem from Middle Eastern mythology, ‘The Epic of Gilgamesh’.
Charlotte is the work of designer Michael Gills, a clean modern face type. It is perfect for almost any text application and particularly effective in bringing across a formal atmosphere. Charlotte is available in both serif and sans serif typeface families, matched in both color and style.
The influence of Czechoslovakian designer Oldrich Menhart is very much in evidence in this new Letraset family designed by Michael Gills. Classified in the typographic sense as an old style roman, Elysium has a vital, refreshing quality borne out of the designer’s love of calligraphy. Although Figural and Elysium both bear the hallmark of the great Czech designer, they are quite different in styles, with the latter taking on a more ‘crisp’ appearance. This feature, coupled with some creative and unique letterforms, has resulted in a typeface family which simply inspires reading.
