About Agatized Formal Font Family

Agatized Formal is a chunky stencil typeface with slightly condensed letterforms and tight spacing. Designed primarily for display use, it’s ideal for posters, logos, advertising, book cover designs or small chunks of text such as pull-out quotes.

It exudes authority without taking itself seriously, like a plump jolly uncle in charge of a brass band. Agatized Formal is a big, bold typeface with a charismatic presence that commands attention – in a friendly way, of course.

But what really makes this typeface come alive is its arsenal of alternative characters and ligatures. There is a saying: Use sparingly. Whoa! Not here, no, no, no. Make your Glyphs palette earn its money. Flex your OpenType muscles: get stylized, contextualized, indulge in some ligaddiction. This typeface is a peacock that likes to put on a show, spread its plumage and strut around in all its blazing glory.

Agatized, according to Wiktionary, means: A living thing converted into the form of agate; fossilized. I felt the name suited the solid, almost rock-like letterforms, but most of all I just wanted a typeface name that began with the letter A.

Although Agatized Formal is a single-weight typeface it has a sibling, Agatized Informal, an older, more casual brother, rougher round the edges with craggy good looks and an altogether more jaunty style.

About ULGA Type

ULGA Type is a small type foundry run by Michael Gills and based near Norfolk in the East of England. I design predominantly display fonts sprinkled with the occasional multi-weight typeface family (when time permits). ¶ My typeface families and fonts are generally characterised by designs that are well-crafted with a pinch of quirkiness, versatile and provide extensive European language support. For my display fonts, I try to inject some fun into the designs, adding lots of alternatives, ligatures and symbols . ¶ Alongside type design, my range of work encompasses monogram & logo designs, custom font designs, hand lettering and a bit of calligraphy.
