Typeface Design: Roxborough a Beautiful Serif Font

Ad

We haven't posted about typeface design for quite a long time, so it's time to change that. Today we feature the Roxborough typeface created and shared by Connary Fagen. The design is a dramatic, voguish serif, influenced by calligraphy and hand lettering. Rich, open construction – built around a distinctive single-storey “a” – pairs nicely with the stylized, expressive italics. Both traditional and chic, Roxborough transforms text into art; it adapts to many applications, including branding and identity design, display and packaging design, subtitles, and copy.

The typeface features:

  • Eight weights
  • Roman and Italic sets 
  • OpenType features
  • Free updates
