ABOUT







Jeremy Tankard Typography [Jeremy Tankard]

Jeremy Tankard established Jeremy Tankard Typography in 1997, after corporate design work at Addison Design Consultants and Wolff Olins. This Londoner made some extraordinary and daring font families. In many of his typefaces, Jeremy mixes upper and lower case letters for more impact. A list of his typefaces:

  • FF Disturbance (1993, a unicase based on Sabon).
  • Alchemy (1998). Mystical. To be used with Enya's music in the background.
  • Blue Island (1999, Adobe).
  • The Shire Types (1998, consisting of Shire-Cheshire, Shire-Derbyshire, Shire-Shropshire, Shire-Staffordshire, Shire-Warwickshire, and Shire-Worcestershire). Shire Pro followed in 2011 and Shire Arabic in 2012. Shire is based on idiosyncratic vernacular lettering seen across Britain.
  • Enigma (1999-2015). A great text typeface family with influences going back o Hendrik van den Keere.
  • Shaker (2000) A sans serif with some flaring.
  • Harmony Greek, a typeface that netted him a Bukvaraz 2001 award alongside the Shire Types and Shaker.
  • Aspect (2002). A typeface with many ligatures and swashes.
  • Bliss (Agfa Creative Alliance). Bliss Pro (2006), a sans family, covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic ina harmonious fashion.
  • Corbel (2004). A sans family made for Microsoft's ClearType project, for which he received a TypeArt 05 award.
  • Custom designs: Epsilon (a very bold face, supposedly designed for the Düsseldorf branch of Frogdesign) and Harmony (for Telstra in Australia).
  • Kingfisher (2005). A transitional petit-Bodonesque serif family.
  • Arjowiggins (2006). Tankard cooperated with Arjowiggins and design agency Blast on AW Inuit that was commissioned by ArjoWiggins for the launch of the Inuit paper: it is a unicase Latin font inspired by Inuit letterforms. See also at MyFonts. The typophiles are unjustly upset at this sort of typeface though.
  • Trilogy (2009). This extensive typeface family consists of Trilogy Sans Compressed, Trilogy Sans Condensed, Trilogy Sans Normal, Trilogy Sans Wide, Trilogy Sans Expanded, Trilogy Egyptian Normal, Trilogy Egyptian Wide, Trilogy Egyptian Expanded, and Trilogy Fatface.
  • Fenland (2012). A 14-style ink-trapped sans.
  • Redisturbed. A classical unicase typeface.
  • Capline (2014). A bilined all-caps typeface family for titling work. It won an award at Modern Cyrillic 2014.
  • Queezoid (2015).
  • Pembroke (2014). A British geometric typeface family with many weights ranging from Hair to Ultra.
  • De Worde (2017). An italic typeface family in seven weights to celebrate the 60th anniversary of e Wynkyn de Worde Society.
  • Wayfarer (2017). He writes: The typeface was originally commissioned for use with a new wayfinding system for the city of Sheffield in the UK. As Sheffield was the home to the type foundry, Stephenson. Blake & Co. it had been thought that their type, Granby Condensed would be suitable. The Granby family of types was developed during the 1930s as Stephenson, Blake's contribution to the general cashing in of other foundries on the popularity of Monotype's Gill Sans and the geometric sans serifs being introduced by the continental type foundries.
  • Hawkland and Hawkland Fine (2018). A text typefaceC with didone and transitional elements.
  • Brucker (2019). An 8-style angular expressionist typeface family.
