is a trademark of The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Font Company.
The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Font Company specialises in typefaces based upon the letterforms of Scotland's revered artist, architect and designer - Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Launched in 1993, the Classic Charles Rennie Mackintosh Font was the brainchild of designer George R. Grant, mainly because his accountant needed the typeface for his wedding invitations! Initially marketed at the printing and graphic design fraternity, sales of the font really snowballed as home PCs became the rule rather than the exception.
The timeless beauty of this font has been enjoyed all over the globe, with museums in Los Angeles, Houston, and Washington DC having distributed it at various times. The font also enjoyed the limelight of Hollywood, with one-time Glasgow School of Art student, director Sam Raimi, requesting its use in his second "Spider Man" movie. George employed the talents of Glasgow designer Joanna McKnight to help with the artwork for the CRM ARTLOVER Font, which was launched in 1995. Many customers had requested a lowercase font (despite the fact that most of Mackintosh's "embellishments" were in uppercase) for printing letters and other larger areas of text. George eventually ;o) obliged and the world's first CRM Font to feature lowercase lettering was born in 2006, to coincide with the inaugural Mackintosh Festival in his home town of Glasgow.
