Back to Jude
Regular readers of my Work Blog will remember that I switched to the font Orkney (post here). However, I have switched the font back to Jude, after a long night’s work (I will hopefully get to Blog about that soon). The font Jude is described as –
Simple, angular and incised, Jude mixes the geometric precision of the computer with expressive and intuitive letterforms. The typeface avoids classical references in construction and proportions to produce a bold, modern serif typeface for text and display.
Which makes Jude ideal for my site – I needed a typeface that would allow the text to be read easily and clearly. It doubles up as a great Desktop Font – I have used it on my business cards too –
Jude is a premium font – you have to buy it to use it. To get the font for yourself click HERE.
Jude was created by Gareth Hague and made its debut in December 2008. Gareth Hague works for Alias. Alias was formed in 1996 by Gareth Hague and David James initially to develop into typefaces the bespoke lettering designs produced for their record cover and book projects.
As well as typeface design, Alias has produced logotype designs for clients including Ghost & L.K.Bennett.
