“My love for scripts is consuming,” says designer Richard Lipton. “There is a dramatic energy when scripts gain contrast and I love to explore that limit.”
And he does precisely that in Tangier, his latest essay in the Spencerian form. The Black weight really pushes the boundaries of contrast in a script, while remaining surprisingly open.
The family is outfitted in four weights, from an exquisitely lacy Light to the hearty, ebullient Black — quite a range for a script family. The OpenType features include stylistic alternates and a selection of different ascender & descender variations.
Disciplined enough for a gala black-tie invitation, zesty enough to jump off the shelf on food packaging, Tangier is an evocative script that offers a broad palette of expressive possibilities.
4 Styles: Light, Medium, Bold, and Black.
Available as OpenType fonts with swash and stylistic alternates.
