Jordan Bell

Graduate of the Masters of Type Design program of the University of Reading, UK. Jordan Bell (Waco, TX) writes about his graduation typeface Odelay (2014): Odelay is a contemporary interpretation of the transitional American Scotch Roman, or Century types, that were designed in the U.S.A. near the end of the 19th century by DeVinne and the Bentons. Inspired by these designs and hand-painted sign lettering, Odelay has a warm, friendly aesthetic that invites the designer to put it to use on a variety of different jobs. With very delicate thin weights, ultra-heavy fat weights, and everything in-between, Odelay is readily available for complex typography at any size. Odelay covers Latin, Greek, Arabic and Cyrillic, with emphasis on the Latin. Jordan's description requires a correction, however--Theodore DeVinne did not design any typefaces---some were named after him, but that is a different story.
