A Cast Iron Display Typeface
This is Arundel, inspired by cast iron lettering above the former Arundel store in my home village.
I had been walking past this iconic façade for over 2 years admiring their “heavy metal” style and could easily envisage a typeface that might be used for band logos, posters and even product branding. It is difficult to age the existing Arundel type, it is definitely blacksmith-made and forged in iron. Naturally, my promotional images play on that metallic feel…
Unlike my previous type designs, Arundel came together very quickly and my initial sketches expanded on the style of the real-life lettering—almost like playing a complementing riff to the backbone rhythm of the original motif.
