34 - Black Tie

We are very lucky this week to have another guest contribution to TFAW...

Glasgow based Chris MacFarlane has been plotting his typeface for a while now fitting in the production of this free font into his busy schedule (thanks Chris!).

Chris said:

" 'Black Tie' was born one day whilst day-dreaming and playing with a cable tie that lay on my desk. The nature of the design instantly leant itself to creating almost any letter or number (in truth it was a lot more fiddly.) To make the characters appear 'organic' each one was formed separately rather than simply piecing shapes together in Photoshop."

This typeface is now unavailable for download - but will be included in the limited edition CD Rom of all 52 Typefaces at the beginning of 2010. To secure a CD Rom, please email us (Phil & Gabi) at . If you would like to get involved in making a typeface for the project, please email us at : or leave a comment below!
