We recently received a number of emails from different people who were looking for a source where they could get the Morpheus font or something like it. We'd heard of Morpheus before - it's one of the most overexposed fonts around - but had never had much interest in it. In an effort to help these customers out we looked for a source where they could purchase it, and though we were able to get some info on the font and find samples, none of the major font resellers had it in their catalogs. We wanted to be able to get people the font, but we didn't want to make a clone of Morpheus. The font is too overexposed, rather poorly rendered, and frankly too unattractive for us to add to our collection. Then an idea errupted. Why not make a font that looked a bit like Morpheus, but which had more attractive, more consistent character forms, was rendered cleanly and properly spaced and kerned? We took a look at Morpheus and decided to redo the concept from the ground up, replacing some of the amateurish characters, adding a bit of a Celtic look and feel, developing a set of alternate characters and making sure that the design elements were consistent from letter to letter. The result is Orpheus, a font which has the general look and feel of Morpheus, but is a much more complete and fully realized design. Morpheus has been very popular despite its shortcomings, but it's been so overexposed designers should really avoid it. Orpheus offers the option of using a new and different font while still getting the general king of mystical, magical look while not actually using Morpheus. In addition, Orpheus is a fully developed font set, with not only regular and bold versions, but with a special customized italic style and a really neat looking heavy weight rough-outlined variant.
