2019, marks 100 years since the Bauhaus opened in Weimar, Germany, changing the course of design for ever. As a designer who's been influenced by its remarkable output,
I thought it was time for a font (in two variations), influenced by the work of Herbert Bayer, during his time at the Bauhaus.
Could this be a world first? A geometric, monoline script typeface. None of that swirly, vintage script nonsense but a clean, balanced, easy-on-the-eye script. Comes as a family
of four weights, with non-aligning (lower case) numbers and accented characters for Eastern European languages.
A streamlined, geometric sans-serif, clean and legible at small sizes. It will fulfil routine tasks with panache, making the ordinary look beautiful. It comes in two styles, with character variations. I'm tempted to get all entrepreneurial in the travel industry, just to see Klamp adorning tickets – I like a good ticket.
Four different screen prints, 500 x 700mm in editions of 50, showcasing Talbot Type fonts — when they're gone, they're gone (but it will be an excuse to do some more).
See these and others on the Posters page.
This is serious. Talbot Type Keymer is a heavyweight humanist sans serif in seven weights. It’s elegant and timeless and can be put to any task, it’s a bit like concrete — the glue that holds stuff together, often unnoticed yet beautiful when used well.
We're not fans of weapons here at Talbot Type, so this is a sweetie tin. New font Karben 105 Stencil looks good on items such as sweetie tins.
BBC Earth makes prominent use of Talbot Type Kamerik 105, both on and off-air. You can see more images on the Talbot Type Facebook page
