Font Family: Dever, Number of fonts: 99*OTF + 99*WOFF, Type Foundry: insigne, Designer: Jeremy Dooley, Design date: 2015
Deverís brute, industrial lines are rounded up in this new typeface from Jeremy Dooley. Dever combines plenty of inspirations. Itís the flair of the Wild West melded with a shout out to the sign painters and package lettering artists of the 1800s. Deverís big, bold, and handy frame moves through all three of the familyís strapping members.
First is the sans. No doubts on what this brotherís like. Dever Sans is as straight-forward as youíll find in this family with its four separate weights and numerous distressed options. The second of the kinís a bit of half-breed, you might say. Pointed serifs bring a sharpness to this outfit. Rounding out the family is Dever Wedge, a bit of wild rodeo all its own.
This pokeís a quick draw with any of its 107 font, and with itís auto-replacing alternates, no two repeating characters are alike. Youíre guaranteed a great show anytime Dever leaves the chute.
The route to Dever was long, with many a switchback. The Wedge variant was designed first, shelved, then developed into Plathorn. But I wanted to return to those brutish forms and decided to round out the family with a sans, serif and plenty of other options.
Any of the Dever family have an extended character set including Central and Eastern European languages. The strong faces have specially adapted sub-families, too, so theyíre bound and determined to have an outstanding impact at whatever size you use Ďem. Itís a hard ride ahead corralling all those words. Be sure and add these able-bodied boys to your posse today!
