A 19th Century Grotesque
Inspired by the iconic type on the façades of the former Woodford, Bourne & Co. buildings in Cork City, Ireland.
I had long admired these distinctive stone cast letters and jumped at the opportunity to interpret this genuine 19th century grotesque.
While creating this font family, it became apparent that it would also be a great idea to have an alternative contemporary style to complement the vintage style. So that’s exactly what I created. So, one of this font’s features is the ability to change the style in one click using an Open Type feature called “Stylistic Sets”. You can change from contemporary-styled characters to a more vintage look by activating Stylistic Set 1.
