Charlie & Echo
Inspired by lettering from fruit stand signage on the Ile d’Orléans, Quebec. The fast, steep slant and not-quite-joining letters led to a style that evokes references of neon, 1980s diners, and gooey, strawberry jam.
A geometric typeface developed for the house style at Post Projects. The wide forms draw from familiar standards like Futura with a hint of influence from European Grotesks.
An all-caps display typeface based on lettering found in rural Mexico.
The result of Esquire Magazine’s desire to keep up with changing fashion and continually evolve the graphic language of the magazine. Based on their existing typefaces, the rounded variations managed a softer tone in a men’s magazine. Created under direction from Commercial Type.
Bon Appétit commissioned a series of fonts based on the magazine’s existing type standards. The four shaded variations enrich display headlines across the publication, evoking styles reminiscent of French bistro signage. Created under direction from Commercial Type. Based on the Graphik type family designed by Christian Schwartz.
Twice Brand commissioned a custom typeface to underpin the new Sport BC identity. The heavy letterforms sit on top of colourful sporting images and obscure the athletes features. The effect gives the images an ‘everyone’ quality, suggesting that the athletes could be anyone.
