Memoriam Pro was designed by Patrick Griffin and published by Canada Type. Memoriam Pro contains 4 designs and family package alternatives. p > The tradition at the New york city Times magazine has actually been to devote the year's last concern to individuals who died throughout the year, especially those whose lives have affected us. Art director Nancy Harris Rouemy, whose typographic design sense has earned her lots of prominent awards over the years, picked an all-type magazine cover for the 2008 issue, and commissioned Canada Type's Patrick Griffin to do a brand-new typeface particularly for that project.

Though a couple of other Canada Type faces were utilized in the magazine with fantastic outcomes over the preceding months (generally Ambassador Script and Sympathique), Nancy believed a few of the ideas in Jezebel's uppercase and Treasury's lowercase would be a good fit onto an all-type commemorative cover, but with a much higher contrast and the infusion of a more luxurious and classy brand name of poster calligraphy that doesn't date itself. After a few various efforts, the first shapes were born, and 6 weeks later there sufficed kinds to do the cover. The typeface was such a success with the editors and designers, it was utilized all over the publication, instead of simply the cover.

The list of individuals being honored with this typeface was definitely enough to persuade Patrick to handle such a requiring project. He 'd grown up in a culture where names like George Carlin, Michael Crichton, Bobby Fisher, Charlton Heston, and Paul Newman were daily family language, and this was a fantastic chance to provide a final tribute to them. Also the enjoyment of dealing with Nancy Harris Rouemy, the woman with the X-ray eyes, with her undeviating vision and constant attention to typographic information, went a long method to forming this typeface and making it the modern and modern piece of beauty it became.

The New york city Times publication concern that initially used Memoriam Pro went on to win a multitude of style contests and publication awards, and continues to raise pleased eyebrows to this really day. The Memoriam design idea likewise ended up being one of the most drawn-upon and mimicked in recent memory.

The retail variation of Memoriam Pro was launched to huge excitement in mid-2009. Ever since it has actually ended up being a standard sight on book and publication covers, signboards, food and cosmetics packaging, event posters, and high-end design pieces all over. It continues generating numerous calls for project-specific personalization for many publications and design companies.
