Fonts from 2013: Charcuterie

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.
