Fonts from 2013: Charcuterie
Veer's Creative Team takes time out to dish on the fonts that
made their year.
Chris's pick from 2013: Charcuterieby Laura
Worthington - (August 2013)
A large and rare undertaking, Charcuterie is a family of
ten distinct yet related typefaces, many of which have their own
font families, and three decorative/ornamental typefaces. This
ambitious, yet accessible, set offers a virtually endless series of
combinations, allowing each designer to form a tasty platter of
ingredients, one that is uniquely theirs, for each project. Used
solo or blended with other fonts from this large family, elements
of Charcuterie are well suited for headlines, titling, logos,
display, packaging, signage, or advertising. Dig deep into each
typeface to find a rich set of fonts (the number depending on the
typeface), revealing variations upon variations.
Charcuterie celebrates the personally crafted -- the sense
of the human touch giving it a slightly rough edge that only adds
to its charm. The 'roughness' derives from a slight stressing and
small irregularities in some fonts. This bit of unevenness doesn't
dominate the look -- it's simply the personality and humanity of
the type designer cooked into the final piece.
