Whatever the medium, Girard's love for typography was the common thread that wove his interact. We are honored that the Girard family has actually entrusted us to celebrate and broaden upon the legacy of this style icon with this collection of fonts. The Girard Slab household gracefully synthesizes illustrative sensibilities into an useful typographic structure. Slab's 3 widths and 4 weights guarantee adaptability in a modern-day editorial setting while its mild curves go beyond the sterility of standard typography to include an unprecedented heat and personality. From boutique chocolate product packaging to the entitling series for an indie vegan superhero animation, Girard Script deftly adds a contemporary elegance to text and display settings. Inspired by a workhorse lettering style that helped Alexander Girard carry out countless style aspects in his overhaul of the Braniff identity system, Girard Sky pulls its weight in any contemporary application. In Girard Sansusie, each character stands alone as an illustrative element while coming together with its equivalents as a whimsical yet practical typeface.


The ligatures include alternatives specially-drawn letter mixes that combine two, three or perhaps 4 characters to develop smoother transitions and imitate lettering sensibilities.Girard Slab's three widths and four weights guarantee versatility in a contemporary editorial setting while its gentle curves go beyond the sterility of standard typography to add an extraordinary heat and personality.Copious alternate characters and "wise" OpenType shows permit Sansusie to leave the rigid boundaries of typography to come alive as if streaming from Girard's sketchpad. This animation reveals a tasting of the swash characters readily available in the font.
