About Signyard Font Family
Based on the popular Microbrew Family (Rising Star, May 2014), Signyard is a display family trapped in time. Inspired by vintage restaurant and hotel signs, Signyard comes decked out in incandescent bulbs for a an authentic retro feel. The family has a unique vintage cinema style, but also works well with a variety of subject matter including weddings, birthdays, breweries, coffee houses, cigar shops, and many more. Signyard is an all caps display font, but the lowercase act as alternates. For super-easy alternates, just mix uppercase and lowercase letters. To add to the realism, Signyard includes double-letter ligatures. Sporting a healthy compliment of features and languages, Signyard is a very versatile display family. Signyard features 6 styles, 4 layers, symbols and opentype features. Opentype features include automatic fractions, subscript numbers, superscript numbers, and double-letter ligatures. Also included are old style numerals, and catchwords. (in the symbols font)
Designers: Jay Hilgert
Design Owner: Albatross
MyFonts debut: Oct 9, 2014
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.
