About RF Marshall Font Family

RF Marshall was inspired by an 1883 tombstone, tucked away in a pioneer cemetery. The 4-sided marker is sparsely adorned with homespun carvings of a handprint, two tulip poplar leaves, and these words: "RF Marshall died 1883 Aged 72 years." The font faithfully reproduces the stone's hand-carved lettering and artwork, as well as artwork from other 18th and 19th century American headstones. It was drawn with calligraphy nibs dipped in walnut ink and delights in a range of end uses including period films, rustic decor, Halloween decorations, historical logos and branding, and on the pages of children's books.

About Magpie Paper Works

Nestled in rural North America, you’ll find the farmhouse that’s home to Magpie Paper Works. If the foundry’s owner and sole designer, Jessica McCarty, isn’t tucked inside designing typefaces, she’s more than likely out chicken wrangling and apple picking. Jessica left behind agency life in 2010, opting instead to create her own studio. Her first font, Saissant, a rough, kinetic calligraphy script, was a non-traditional typeface that was almost instantly very popular. “I created Saissant,” she says, “because I was working on a client’s project and needed a font that looked truly handmade and wild, only to discover that there weren’t really any options available at the time. I figured that if I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I should make it instead. The rest was history!” The self-taught designer approaches each project with a strong background in calligraphy and typographic illustration; a toolset that brings a hand-lettered feel to each of her typefaces. This is especially true for Jessica’s best selling font, Ondise: a calligraphy font with robust Opentype features and a warm, fresh and charming vibe. Jess says that she’s seen her fonts used in everything from logos and wedding invitations to West Elm catalogs and even in the movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby. “It’s wonderful to have full creative freedom,” she says, “and I adore collaborating directly with clients to help them get the most out of their font purchases.”
