Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of designers endlessly sing the praises of the “Neutral Sans”. You know, something strong and clear, but without a lot of overt personality. What I have never heard, is anyone talk about a nice “Neutral Serif”. So I decided I would make one. I’ve alway been a fan of C. H. Griffith’s work, especially the newspaper faces he designed for Mergenthaler. So with that in my head, I went ahead with something I thought would fit into that vein. Strong, legible, devoid of overt personality, but not totally boring. It helped that I had a client going on and on about e-books and something that would look good on the screen. Well, the client lost interest, but I went ahead anyway, and I’m quite happy with the results. I hope you are too.
