Alchemy is a modern display-style font with soft, round edging that gives it a vintage twist. The soft edging is used to replicate a vintage print effect. The font was carefully crafted by hand with a classic letterpress aesthetic in mind while also utilising strong, straight lines and stems associated with more modern display fonts.
The font was handlettered with meticulous attention to detail on the round edges. After creating each letter and punctuation by hand, the font was then retraced with guides and grids in Illustrator with the focus to maintain the soft edging and astute execution that was gained by creating the font by hand originally.
The font package includes 16 vector icons inspired by science lab equipment. The vectors are fully customisable and are delivered in .EPS format for ease of use.
The full Alchemy package;
- Alchemy Light
- Alchemy Regular
- Alchemy Bold
- Alchemy Alt. Regular
- Alchemy Alt. Bold
- Alchemy Lab Equipment Vectors
Features 2 styles; a Standard and an Alternative, both in an uppercase and lowercase alphabet. Alchemy has punctuation support with 25+ glyphs and also maintains currency and numerical support. The Alternative style changes the ascenders and other small elements of the stem/foot of the letter.
The Standard family contains 3 weights; light, regular, and bold.
The Alternative family contains 2 weights; regular and bold.
Works great in both large format displays, or in reduction. Although the larger it gets, the better it looks. The font was inspired by a logo I created for a client.
