We got over 100 responses to our poll to pick our next new font, and the winner by a neck was the font now known as Ormandine, which is our new featured font as promised. It’s a gothic lettering font with a bit of an Art Nouveau flare and with outlined characters very appropriate for sign and poster design. The uppercase character set has the outlined characters and the lowercase has a non-outline version.
Ormandine turned out to be much more difficult to develop than expected. Getting the outlining of the characters exactly right required a great deal of tweaking and adjustment, but it was what the masses voted for, so we did the work and the result is pretty satisfactory. Two of the other fonts in the poll also got very high marks, so we’ll probably start working on them for our next new releases.
You can download and try the demo version of Ormandine in TrueType format for Mac or PC. It includes a mix of characters from the different variants of the font. You can also order the full version online for immediate download: BUY IT NOW.
