Grenale, a haute couture sans-serif.










The elegant Grenale brings a new look to the classic didone. This shimmering sans-serif family with its mild deco shades alters the typical serifs and terminals of the classic style to form a gracefully eye-catching, high-contrast font.

While high-contrast, sans serif forms tend to disappear in the copy, Grenale’s meticulously designed features exhibit proper balance in the spacing and in the thorough improvements of its contours. The rigorous consideration given these details leaves a delicate typeface that doesn’t get washed out in certain applications. Its pure, polished, geometric structure has a glamorous sensitivity, drawing heavily from the inspiration of the haute couture influence.

Grenale’s thin weights are simple but vibrant--elegant forms that naturally lend themselves to high fashion journals, high-end branding, and other five star applications. With added energy and power, the thicker weights with their ink traps and optical compensation intensify the gravitas for a statelier look to the graceful forms. Grenale’s upright versions are also matched by optically adjusted italics, intentionally tailored to maintain their counterparts’ sharp edge, causing the font’s fierce characteristics to shine through the refined face.

The typeface also includes a wide variety of alternates that can be accessed in any OpenType-enabled application. The stylish features include a large group of alternates, swashes, and meticulously precise details with teardrop terminals and alternate titling caps to accessorize the font. Also included are capital swash alternates, old style figures, and small caps. Take a look at the informative PDF brochure to see these features in action. OpenType enabled applications such as the Adobe suite or Quark can take full advantage of the automatic replacing ligatures and alternates. This family also offers the glyphs to support a wide range of languages.

It’s time to think high-class. Graceful and confident, Grenale’s carefully crafted features transfer pleasantly to each page with elegant charm. With its variety of alternate glyphs and its high, classy contrast, this five star font is a great option for bringing a more refined look to your work.

Introducing Blue Goblet Drawn











Blue Goblet Drawn provides the fun, whimsical experience your project has been looking for. Based on the best-selling series Blue Goblet by artist Cory Godbey and designer Jeremy Dooley, the new, hand-drawn fonts and ornaments dance freely and effortlessly across the baseline and x-height to create a charming and exuberant display.

The new font family member offers great flexibility to your work, especially when used with the original Blue Goblet fonts and the wide range of ornaments in the supplemental ornament sets. These include doodley frames, lovely florals, and other text ornaments that can be inserted into your text and resized as desired--over 370 illustrations total! The Blue Goblet Series’ artsy versatility gives you the freedom to develop a type system for a very independent yet consistent look that seems to shun convention.

Blue Goblet Drawn comes in three weights and three widths in each weight. These along with the complementary italics for maximum impact provide a total of eighteen pro fonts. The compact, thin weights are delicate and tall, while the Regular has just enough heft for those situations where subtlety won’t work. If you don't need the professional features, there are three stripped down fonts that include only the basic character set--each for a steep discount!

Blue Goblet Drawn includes auto-replacing ligatures, adding an organic touch that lends even more of Godbey’s artistic hand to your work. The font face also includes a wide variety of alternates that can be accessed in any OpenType enabled application. Blue Goblet Drawn contains more than 190 additional OpenType glyphs and is loaded with features such as its unique alternate alphabet. Also encompassed in the family’s wide variety are swash alternates, style sets, old style figures, and small caps. Please see the informative PDF brochure to see these features in action.
