Commercial Classics: The Past is the Present

Paul Barnes

Partner at Commercial Type

This event has happened

For nearly ten years Commercial Type have been producing new typefaces for todays needs and challenges; from such classics as Guardian, Publico and Graphik through to new and challenging faces like Orientation, Marian and Dala Floda. But another side to Commercial Type, Commercial Classics, has been looking to the past, and finding old forms that modern designers will find useful, from large serif and sans families like Brunel and Caslon Doric, through to more unusual but beautiful styles, like the strange Caslon Italian. Commercial Type partner Paul Barnes will be talking about where these old faces come from and how they have been remade for today.
