Gill Sans

Mind the gap! Does Gill Sans look familiar? It’s widely popular for it’s use across all British railways. The iconic font was created by Eric Gill for the Monotype Corporation. Interestingly enough, Gill Sans is considered both modern and classical thanks to it’s perfect blend of classic serif types and Roman inscriptions.

FOTW Frutiger

Swiss typographer Adrian Frutiger was commissioned by the airport in Paris to create new signage for directional purposes. It was important to create a highly legible font for the airport to use, and thus Frutiger was born! Frutiger’s modern yet casual look has made it a favorite for companies like Amtrak, Panda Express, and Polaroid.

lucida-sans-font-of-the-week

Lucida Bright is one of many in the Lucida font family. Designers Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes created the fun and easy to read family in 1993 for uses in a variety of print ranging from magazines to newsletters. The family was aptly named “Lucida” as a reference to the easily understood format and “lucid” nature. You may recognize Lucida Bright from it’s home in the Microsoft Office suite.

Through the everyday hustle and bustle, we can sometimes forget the bigger picture.  Pausing to reflect on what we are thankful for really puts everything into perspective.  The Merchandising Team recently donated some of CustomInk’s apparel and identity merchandise to Holmes Middle School in Alexandria, VA.  The kids, teachers, and parents were nothing short of appreciative of our donations.  The students and parents responded to the donations with hand written thank you cards that really made our day.  Check out some of the letters and photos they sent us:

“Dear Sweet Angel,

Many Blessings,
Holmes Middle School Parent”

“Thank you for everything you have given me.  I appreciate it with all my heart – William Molina”

Creating a big impact with a small gesture for this Middle School sure makes us proud to be Inkers.  CustomInk is more than just a company, we’re a Community that works toward making a small impact wherever we can!
