About Microbrew Unicase Font Family

Microbrew Unicase is the latest addition to the Microbrew family, a versatile retro display family. Microbrew Unicase has 14 individual styles plus a very functional set of catchwords, and a fresh and eclectic set of retro-style ornaments. Microbrew Unicase sports a nice mix between wood type poster style, and vintage letterpress. The more detailed styles work well at large sizes, and the cleaner styles add legibility at smaller sizes. Microbrew Unicase is an all caps display font, but the lowercase act as alternates. The uppercase are all uppercase letter forms, while the lowercase is mixed. Type in all caps to be a buzz-kill. Mix upper and lowercase to have a little fun. Or type in all lowercase to have a party! (more informal) For super-easy alternates, just mix uppercase and lowercase letters. To add to the realism, Microbrew Unicase includes double-letter ligatures. Microbrew Unicase also includes a set of extremely intentional and eclectic ornaments and symbols. Designed to give a vintage feel, the ornaments and symbols compliment Microbrew nicely to round off the family. The ornaments also include old style numbers, and lots of retro symbols. Don't let the name fool you, Microbrew Unicase is very versatile and works great for almost any subject matter, including weddings, birthdays, restaurants, coffee shops, music, and many more. Opentype features include automatic fractions, subscript numbers, superscript numbers, and double-letter ligatures.

About Albatross

With a library of 25 wildly varying typefaces, it’s hard to believe that Albatross started out as a “self-training exercise” for Oklahoma-based designer Jay Hilgert. Following several years spent working as a graphic and web designer, Jay launched his foundry in 2008 with his debut typeface Tire Shop. Since then, the designer has continued to hone his natural gift for crafting beautiful display faces. One of his most recent fonts, Microbrew, is proof of the foundry's expertise in this genre of type. Featured in our May 2014 edition of Rising Stars, the foundry’s most popular font to date has reigned over the Hot New Fonts list and even made it into the top 5 of our Best Sellers list after it’s release. Drawing inspiration from his hometown, the designer says that a handful of Albatross fonts are based on “found” type in and around Oklahoma City. He loves to experiment with different hand-drawn production techniques and to incorporate symbols into his typefaces.
