ABOUT







Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Lettering artist and architect in Glasgow (b. Glasgow, 1868, d. London, 1928). He was a designer in the Arts and Crafts movement and also the main exponent of Art Nouveau in the United Kingdom. Some speculate that he had Asperger's Syndrome. Typefaces based on his lettering include ITC Rennie Mackintosh (1996, by Phill Grimshaw), ITC Rennie Mackintosh Ornaments (also by Phill Grimshaw), ITC New Rennie Mackintosh (2017, by the Monotype design team), and Willow (by Tony Forster). Check the Glasgow School of Art, ITC and U&LC.

The CRMFontCo headed by George R. Grant specialises in typefaces based upon the letterforms of Mackintosh. They published multiple styles of these fonts: Rennie Mackintosh (1993, the original by George R. Grant), Rennie Mackintosh Glasgow (2007, with lowercase letters added), and Rennie Mackintosh Artlover (1995: art deco dingbats by George Grant and Joanna McKnight). Later additions include The Classic Charles Rennie Mackintosh Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Artlover Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Stems Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Glasgow Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Renaissance Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Hillhouse Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Moonlight Font, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Scotland St. Font, and The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Venezia Font<.
