Mallory

  • Mallory began as an experiment in mixing typographic traditions, building a new design with British and American traits. My father was American and my mother is English, so I also had a more personal motivation, to make a typeface that mirrors my own heritage. Mallory also includes “MicroPlus” versions, which simultaneously address text sizes on screen and tiny sizes in print. The idea builds from the history I learned from my mentors like the late Mike Parker and is an attempt to use history to bridge the gap between print and digital environments.  Designed 2014–2015​​​​​​​
