Fonts from 2013: Sheldon

Fonts from 2013: Sheldon

The Veer Creative Team voted for their favorite fonts of 2013 and Mike picked Sheldon by Ricardo Marcin and Erica Jung for Pintassilgo Prints (March 2013). 

Sheldon draws inspiration from the beautiful and eloquent posters of Polish graphic artist Marian Stachurski. Generously sprinkled with stylistic oddities, this is the perfect typeface for having some cool typographic unevenness without losing the ever-handy sans-serifness. Sheldon is a unicase font, but holds different characters on upper- and lower-case slots for a more consistent handcrafted feel. Its OpenType Contextual Alternates feature can manage to instantly alternate the glyphs - which can be great also for webfont usage! The family includes 3 handy weights, so it can accommodate numerous typographic tasks. It also brings a very cool picture font, which charmingly completes this useful and visually striking font family. Have fun!
