This typeface developed from the word gregarious, this word is defined as sociable or enjoying company of others, the term was used the most in the 1920s. I developed this study to looking at 1920s typefaces and aimed to find a way of making the geometric sanserifs look sociable and lively. A main social activity at this time was listening to the new revelation of Jazz music which became the basis of how I wanted to portray in this project whilst showing a modern twist. Jazz musicians play their songs in their own distinct styles, and so you might listen to a dozen different jazz recordings of the same song, but each will sound different and this idea is something i tried to bring into this typeface; the set of letters look the same but depending on which word/sentence you type it will look different.
Fitzgerald Sans is a retro, art-deco inspired typeface to be used for large text and display purposes.
Version 1.5: Added Greek and made many refinements. Also came up with a new tilde design for all the glyphs that have one.
By request, a casual art deco design.
A recap of the lettering by "Fre Cohen". And as additional supplement I attempted to complete the entire alphabet plus some punctuations.
In loving memory of the great Dutch graphical designer Frederika Sophia (Fré) Cohen(August 11, 1903 – June 14, 1943).
Work in progress.
