Does anyone know who designed this typeface for the England 2018 world cup bid?
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
In a class I took this semester, Materializing the Word: The Book as Object, Technology, Concept, and Event, 1500-1800, I researched the text font used by William Jaggard for Shakespeare's First Folio, printed from 1621 to 1623 in London. Below is a short summary of my paper. Although I feel reasonably confident about the visual and historical evidence for my conclusions, they must be viewed with some skepticism; myriad attributes can create a misleading appearance, from inking and justification to paper quality and mixed-sort fonts.
