Something "fun". Inspired by the many journeys I've made and by train travels. And by my grandchildren's train toys. The angular design echoes small table tops we sometimes use to put the tracks on ...
UC is normal weight and is used in the sampler (font name). LC has some thicker lines for increased legibility although this font is only meant to illustrate concepts (travel, finding new ways, diversification etc) or for logos, shop signs, invitations and similar. Not simple enough for use in anything long or complex that has to be easily read.

This san serif, textured, bold font is inspired by the old cast iron type on train carts. When I discovered the old train carts down at the 'Bristol Harbour Railway' I was fascinated by these incredible forms.
To create the structure of these characters I worked from one of the rubbings I took of a particularly nice iron plate and then scanned it into the computer to replicate the letters which where missing. I then printed this on to graph paper and transferred the bricks one by one to try and get the most accurate representation as possible.This is a clone

My first fontstruct. It's pretty basic, but it's perfect for a project i'm working on. No lowercase needed.

a geometric typeface inspired by 1950s-1970s lettering of the swiss railways, based on a square shape for most letters. there will be condensed and extended versions too.
if you use this font for print, web, logos or other publications, please drop me a note, i'd be happy to receive samples and photos of the font in use!
