DESIGNING TYPE: REMINGTON
Type design
2013

Type inspired by typewriters

There's something classy and timeless about traditional serif typefaces, the way they can embody the energy of a 19th century advertisement while maintaining the quiet dignity of an aging book collecting dust on a shelf. Remington posses both qualities, refined and modernized for a fresh take on the classic antique typewriter from which it borrows it's name.


Inspired by the original Remington logo
