ABOUT







Gareth Hague

British type designer. With David James, [T-26] co-designer of AES, August. At Alias (a company he founded with David James in London), he made Barb (2016, a wide stencil typeface), Asperity (2012), Asphalt (2012), Aspic (2012), Caustic and Caustic Web (2012, chiseled), Lily (2012), Oban (2011, a gorgeous high-contrast didone family influenced by Thorowgood; with blackboard bold styles included), Ano (2012, a simple circle-based monoline sans family; followed in 2018 by the straight-edged Ano Angular), Cactus (2004, a condensed typeface family), Aspic (2011, a signage script), Asphalt (2011, signage script), Perla and Perla Outline (2004, an elegant artdeco unicase didone with teardrop terminals), Klute (Black, Capitals, White: an ugly and useless octagonal family that could be used for gnawing German expressionist pieces), Anomoly (2004), Key, Elephant, Harbour (2008: a medieval, broken look, with wedge serifs), Civility (2002, connected handwriting), Factory, Aminta, Granite (1995), Intimo, Jackdaw, Progress, Progress Two (2012), Sylvia, Jude (1999, a big text family), Mantis, Metropolitan, Metsys (1997), Pop (triline font), Sister (1995), Text.

In 2009, he designed 2012 Headline for the London Olympics---typophiles are generally disappointed with this daring design in the general angular category, and refer to better representatives of this genre such as Cyrus Highsmith's Occupant Gothic, Emigre's Elektrix, Hubert Jocham's Keks, and Chris Lozos's Dez Sans Script.

With David James, he designed Noah Text (2013).

In 2018, he designed Quair: Quair mixes typographic and graphic reference points, most notably from market-stall trader lettering and from Thorowgood and Scotch nineteenth-century typefaces. He also published the stencil typeface High in 2018.

Typefaces from 2019: Schism One, Schism Two, Schism Three [these are serifless versions of Alias Didot with various amounts of contrast. They are more modulated and twistier than Peignot], Vertical (a humanist sans with vertical terminals: a squarish, high-shouldered shape, suggesting Roger Excoffon's Antique Olive).
