Fnord is a contemporary humanist serif typeface, it is ideally suited for display purposes and branding. The family has been designed to be highly versatile, containing a total of 23 fonts – each font features discretionary ligatures, swash alternates and true small caps. The overall design is clean and elegant with a little bit of rebelliousness thrown in for good measure – Fnord does not conform to the traditional serif blueprint.
Fnord’s design has been strongly influenced by the complex, thought-provoking and mischievous works of authors Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea from the 1970s. I was re-reading their work while sketching the initial letterforms and realised that some of the proportions and angles were coinciding with some themes that run through the books.
I found it both very interesting and enjoyable to play with a specific theme and purpose for creating this typeface. I am sure you will enjoy working with it in your own design projects.
