New Release

Miller Banner

Miller Banner reaches new heights by going all out. It’s big in personality, beautiful in its crisp, elegant forms, and splendid in large typographic landscapes.

Miller Banner is both a complement and a contrast to Matthew Carter’s wildly popular Miller series for publications. Prepared by Richard Lipton, the expansion completes the series by providing a range of styles for use in oversized banner headlines and titles. But it goes beyond its sturdy Scotch heritage, venturing into seductive realms of dramatic contrast, slender thins, and superfine serifs.

It’s as equally at home on the pages of a slick, high-heel-strutting fashion magazine as on a travel poster touting the windswept mountains and sinuous lochs of the Scottish Highlands. Miller Banner is a designer’s must-have for highlighting all things bigger than they are, more beautiful by their contrast, and deemed splendid in their own right.

10 Styles: Light, Roman, Semibold, Bold, and Black; All with italics.
