About Nightshade Font Family


Nightshade was my attempt to bring the Old English fonts up to date. The capital letters still contain flourishes, but they look more machined and less calligraphic. I called the font Nightshade after the plant of the same name. Like the plant, it may be considered to be beautiful or poisonous depending on one's outlook. As a result, it can be applied when an attractive, ornate look is required, or it can be used when there is a need to create a more chilling effect.



Nightshade has a glyph count of 389 and supports the following languages


Afrikaans, Albanian, Asu, Basque, Bemba, Bena, Bosnian, Catalan, Chiga, Colognian, Cornish, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Embu, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Filipino, Finnish, French, Friulian, Galician, German, Gusii, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Kabuverdianu, Kalaallisut, Kalenjin, Kamba, Kikuyu, Kinyarwanda, Latvian, Lithuanian, Low German, Lower Sorbian, Luo, Luxembourgish, Luyia, Machame, Makhuwa-Meetto, Makonde, Malagasy, Malay, Maltese, Manx, Meru, Morisyen, North Ndebele, Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk, Nyankole, Oromo, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Romansh, Rombo, Rundi, Rwa, Samburu, Sango, Sangu, Scottish Gaelic, Sena, Shambala, Shona, Slovak, Slovenian, Soga, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Swiss German, Taita, Teso, Turkmen, Upper Sorbian, Vunjo, Walser, Zulu

About MKGD

My name is Michael Kovacevich and I run MKGD Font Foundry. I’ve been a professional graphic designer for the better part of three decades. I’ve freelanced, worked in various studios, and in the art departments of garment industries. During that time I, like most designers, have dealt with type on a daily basis. I’ve set, kerned, tracked, bastardized and hand lettered type of all kinds over those many years. These days however, I’ve decided to bring my experience to bear on the designing of typefaces. I like to think of it as distilling my years of experience into something that anyone with a creative interest could utilize. During the course of my efforts, I hope people will find my work as interesting for them to use, as it is for me to produce.
