Beginning in the (early) 1800s, the Fann Street foundry in London produced a few designs in the brand new genre of “fatfaces.” They were intended for short words to be printed HUGE, and for this purpose, they worked quite well! In the 1970s, everything old was new again, but this time the exaggerated proportions of the era infected the x-heights of many well-trodden styles. Weight was pushed to new extremes. Negative space in and around letters shrank to minuscule specs of white. Now in post-Mad-Men-and-Mumford-&-Sons 2020, The 1970s are breathing new life into the landslide of digital typefaces being produced at a dizzying pace. We are reminded of the cyclical nature of trends, but also of the things that don’t go out of style: even texture, and high contrast. Where the typefaces of Fann Street were intended only for a short word here or there, we can now create the entire spectrum between display and text, providing designers with a Swiss Army knife for all their fatface needs.
