About Ruskin Font Family

The origin of Ruskin was a commission for Michael Harvey to design a signage font for the Dean Gallery in Edinburgh. The style of the letterforms was to complement the period of the building which was originally an orphanage built in 1839. Only uppercase letters were created at first with the lowercase letters—and other characters necessary for a font—added later. With elegant and slightly extended letterforms, Ruskin fulfilled its rôle well as a signage font. It also functioned extremely well as a general display font. It is particularly suited to item descriptions and placards in galleries and museums which are frequently read from an angle, as well as head-on. The fonts have both proportionally and monospaced numerals.

About Fine Fonts

Fine Fonts was formed to tap the creative skills of Michael Harvey and Andy Benedek. Before the formation, Michael Harvey had a very long and distinguished career as a letter cutter, a lettered book jacket designer, a type designer and a teacher. He has designed numerous typefaces which have been published by Monotype, Adobe and the Dutch Type Library. In contrast, Andy Benedek began his working life as a metallurgist—discovering the joy of lettering and font design later in life. He now earns his living by drawing lettering and fonts for corporate and brand identities, magazines and newspapers. The launch of Fine Fonts in 2000 was marked by the introduction of an entirely original display face, Aesop and that tradition has been maintained with later releases. Sadly, Michael Harvey died in October 2013, but Fine Fonts continues with Andy Benedek.
