Peter Font Family $295 | 16 x TTF and OTF
While working on his master thesis designer Philip Lammert was thinking of a logotype for his type foundry Calligrafiction. He thought that the most obvious and boring graphic illustrating the name would be a brush lettering. So he started sketching a static sans-serif between Helvetica® and Arial®, soon adding slight references to the calligraphic origin of type. The rough logo idea of the beginning ended up becoming a type family of 16 fonts with each 600 glyphs.
Peter is a Neo-Grotesque Sans with rational and clear basic letterforms, while in its details it unfolds distinct attributes of humanist type traditions. Combining these characteristics it works perfectly side by side with transitional serif typefaces. As a grotesque it claims a very common design, yet offering the warmth of humanist drafts. Thus the child needed a very common name: Peter.
