About Talbot Type

I am Adrian Talbot, a Creative Partner at INTRO, a London-based creative agency, where I’ve worked since 1990 helping to establish the company as a graphic design force, with a diverse and enviable list of clients. Some of my recent identity work for INTRO, featuring Talbot Type fonts, is in the ‘Identities’ section of the site.

Throughout my time at INTRO, and going right back to my college days, I’ve had a passion for all things to do with lettering and typefaces. By 2012, I thought I’d spent long enough looking at — and working with — other people’s fonts to have a go at designing my own. It’s been a steep learning curve and the fonts here are the results of my efforts to date. I will continue to add new designs in the future, as well as further evolved versions of these faces.

The styles are influenced by the classic movements of the twentieth century — Modernism, Constructivism, the Bauhaus and Art Deco. There are practical, hard-working text fonts and more playful display fonts.

I’m pleased to report that they have been widely used, the world over, by organisations large and small. Notable clients include BBC, NHS, Royal Museums Greenwich, Camden Roundhouse and the Victorian State Government in Australia.

Typefaces don’t come to life until they’re put to some use and to that end I enjoy playing with them once I’ve created them, which is where the letter art and stationery come in. You never know, if people see something that intrigues them in some way then they might be persuaded to purchase a font – or at least become aware of Talbot Type; I’ve kept the font prices pretty low as an extra incentive.
