Here are samples of Greater Albion Typefounders' latest two releases, which have just launched on myfonts.com and fontspring.com.
Paragon is a display Roman family of nine faces, combining elements of formality and fun. It embodies a high degree of contrast between near hairline horizontal strokes and bold vertical strokes. The family is offered in three widths and in regular, small capitals and title faces. Use Paragon to lend impact to your next design project.
Hello! I've just seen this beautiful typeface, and I'm looking for a similar font for use in a magazine as a display/titles typeface. Which typefaces are similar to "Platform"? It is beautiful!
saw this on a draft of a poster for sint lucas "bold italic" 2008
In the attached image—album cover for Talking Heads' Psycho Killer—is "Psycho Killer" set in a typeface? Or is that an effect on a typeface? I am working on a project influenced by this album cover and I cannot seem to figure this out. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you for your time,
Part of making my first text font was trying to make all the mistakes possible, so I could learn about what goes into making a complete typeface. One mistake was to get ahead of myself in creating glyphs, and I find myself making that mistake again- but I can't help adding alternates. I would like to iron out kinks in the glyphs before moving on- so any help- pointers etc. will be greatly appreciated.
The PDF is the vector version of the jpeg.
Hello! I'm doing a research and probably a project which the final "product" (only for academic purposes, I emphatize) would be a magazine in which design would be the main subject. I was thinking something in a similar square format as the new Creative Review (after the redesign).
I've looked typefaces such as Apex New, which is one of my favourite "squarish" sans-serifs. Chester Jenkins did an awesome job on that! The typeface is beautiful and it seems to work nicely on body text. (Klavika is beautiful, but I want to see something a little bit different and yet, with some "squarish" proportions)
The other one that seems to fit is "Leitura Sans", by Dino dos Santos for titles and body text.
Hello, I am happy to finally announce the release of my new typeface!

Hello everyone, this is my newest typeface that started as a Python script experiment and now transformed into a regular font family.
ION superfamily consists of 3 families — condensed (ION A), normal (ION B) and wide (ION C). The glyphs are based on the classic 7-segment display. Every ION family has a compelling range of 10 weights, supports more than 70 Latin-based languages and various OpenType features, including discretionary ligatures, fractions and stylistic sets. The family is completed with a special box-drawing font called Cells. See and read more at Urtd or go check it at MyFonts.
Thanks for your comments!
Tradition meets tomorrow in Mexborough-Mexborough has just been released by Greater Albion and is being offered at 30% introductory discount on Myfonts.com. Here's a specimen sheet showing the six members of the Mexborough family.
Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.
Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:
Over a year ago I started thinking of new font names, er...a theme of different font names for a different family of different styles :P At last, Beefcakes is in the final stages and is scheduled for release on August 20th, w00t! It is the first of the "Cakes" series, a collection of display fonts inspired by various brush lettering styles. The series will include Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes, and as each typeface is unique (not to mention time-consuming to draw!) they will be released as they're finished...

Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched 'Corton' a pair of display Roman small capitals faces.
Corton was inspired by the traditional lettering on a gravestone in an English village. While that might sound a rather solemn beginning, Corton has wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Two faces are offered-regular and titular. Between them they are ideal signage and display faces, merging 'olde-worlde' charm and fun character.
Corton is currently available through Myfonts, and is offered at a 35% introductory discount.
Here's a tough one (the display face).
I have been reading this book called "Manual of graphic techniques 3" (old, but quite an interesting read) and one of the samples used there caught my eye.
I thought it's just a hand-drawn sample of type treatment, not a typeface itself, as I couldn't find any information about it in the credits. I like it so much, I was thinking of making the rest of the alphabet.
I guess I'm too naive and inexperienced, just recently stumbled into some artwork with the same looking type in it.
I assume there is a typeface, so I would like you to help me identifying it. I've attached a photograph of it (the "Mercury" one):
Greater Albion has just released three new families on Myfonts.com.
Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an 'All-Capitals' face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.
I'm trying to I.D this font. It seems similar to Marcelle but a heavier weight and no destruction.
Any help much appreciated.
Need to create a headline to match the labeling... Can someone help out with an ID?
From the designer:
Sinder began life as a custom block font that was begging to be distressed. Of course it was only an experiment, not to be taken seriously, until a customer needed a face of just about these proportions to give his "paranormal investigation" hobby an appropriately scary image. It was out of necessity, then, that I finished the entire font. It never pays to be caught off-guard at a critical point in a layout.
Does anyone know this type face?
It has very curious lc 'n' and 'a'.
Mad trying to ID this face...

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.
