ABOUT







Lewis McGuffie

British graphic designer and sign painter who was at some point in Tallinn, Estonia. Graduate of the MATD program at the University of Reading, class of 2019.

Old German Baltic maps gave him the inspiration for the signage family Livo Display (2014). Other typefaces, all done in 2015: Imperija Roman (2015, an impressive Trajan typeface for posters and editorial use; Lewis explains: The original letters were drawn from a memorial engraving in Ljubljana, Slovenia), Trout Beer (display type), Andra Roman (a humanist sans based on a letter sample dated around 1920 found in the Estonian History Museum), Cream (an Italian western type based on an original wood type), Gauss (a pointy stencil type), Heath Egyptian (based on Caslon's Two-Line Egyptian: a custom type for London-based craftsman Daniel Heath), Poison, Titanik Tuleva, Hebden (a grotesque and incised pair inspired by the original signs at Hebden Bridge train station in Yorkshire).

Typefaces from 2016: Fleischer Display, Bobik (a sans / slab / wedge serif triplet of fonts initially developed based on basic principles described in Jean Alessandrini's Codex 80), Cindie Mono (four monospaced fonts of widely varying widths), Cenotaph Titling (a free engraved titling typeface influenced by Eric Gill's inscriptions).

Typefaces from 2017: Osselian Demi (lapidary), Borough Grotesk (free; updated to Pro in 2018), Tusker Grotesk (a headline grotesk in the tradition of Haettenschweiler, Impact and Helvetica Inserat; influences include Inland Type's Title Gothic No.8 and Stephenson Blake Elongated Sans No.1), Gardner Sans.

Typefaces from 2018: Chicken Shop Gothic (a condensed grotesk published by Typeverything: partly inspired by Benguiat's 1968 sample book Psychedelitype and part-nod to the stretched tacky stick-on-vinyl lettering on the windows of late-night takeaways, Chicken Shop is a variable font with a super-size height axis), Zierde Grotesk (a take on early advertising, small-copy grotesks of the late 19th/early 20th century, and is largely inspired by Miller & Richard's own range of grotesques. The ornaments were inspired by J.G Schelter & Giesecke's 1913 type specimen book Die Zierde). Sortie Super (Italian stress Western font). During his studies at Ecole Estienne (Paris), Manuel de Lignières (Montpellier, France) published Waba (2018) with Lewis McGuffie. Inspired by woodblock types and art nouveau, Waba is a bit of love letter to Estonia, the Baltics and the visual history of Eastern Europe. The free variable font Waba Border (2018) was added by Lewis McGuffie. Find Waba at Type Everything.

Typefaces from 2019: Cham (heavy, octagonal, based on fascia lettering from 1875 in Liverpool; released by Type Everything), Chicken Shop Gothic (a condensed poster sans, with a variable type option), Columba (a variable font done for his graduation at MATDi with Latin, Greek, Cyrillic & Hebrew coverage and optical size and weight axes).

Typefaces from 2020: Cindie 2 (an extension of Cindie Mono, this family has 26 monospaced widths).
