Immi 505 is another of Tim Donaldsons prolific works. Inventive and fun-loving as always, Tim used a pen nib called a 505 in a unique way to create the letterforms for this design. (The other part of the name, Immi, is the nickname of Donaldsons daughter Imogen.)
Created by prolific British designer Timothy Donaldson, Orange defies the conventional rules of letter construction. It has a soft appearance with an unusual thick/thin stoke style that produces a fascinating texture when viewed in small and large sizes. Perfect for work that requires a departure from the standard sans serif styles.
This dynamic, dry brush script typeface was designed by Tim Donaldson, a leading English calligrapher and lettering designer. Donaldson’s experiments with different tools on different surfaces resulted in Ru'ach’s strong, graphically appealing letterforms which convey an immediate impression of confidence and authority. To maximize the visual impact of Ru'ach, close letter and word spacing is recommended.
An easy, free-spirited typeface developed directly on-screen by English calligrapher Timothy Donaldson. Don't be fooled by Trackpad’s apparent undisciplined style - despite its hand-drawn appearance it has been carefully worked to ensure easy reading, even in small sizes. Jagged features give the text a pleasing texture and produce an informal, yet striking appearance.
According to designer Tim Donaldson, the appeal of Twang lies in its ugliness! Its unstructured, craggy features give it an aggressive edge that boldly cries out for attention. An extra set of small capitals adds more zest to a style that is on the cutting edge of display type trends. Ideally suited for retail promotions and fashion-related publications as well as large poster and signage applications.
British designer Tim Donaldson based the capitals for this fascinating typeface on early Etruscan letterforms created thousands of years ago. The lowercase is softer in appearance and provides the perfect accompaniment to the angular uppercase. The result is an unusual condensed sans serif typeface with an ancient, archaelogical appearance.
Coriander started out as a doodle one afternoon when type designer and handwriting expert Tim Donaldson was bored and uninspired. He wrote the word Coriander and then was distracted by the sun beating through an adjacent window. So he taped the writing paper up on the window to block the glare. It stayed there for about three months until he took it down one day, folded it up, and stuck it in his pocket. About a week later the piece of paper fell out of his pocket and he was prompted to draw the rest of the characters (two alphabets) in his sketchbook. The final digitized characters were created by Donaldson using a Wacom tablet and later refined on the screen.
