Volume 13 - 9.15.20

Some vintage-inspired fonts that signal anything from 70s cool to a stamped grain bag from the 40s!

As of late, I have been obsessed with vintage fonts. I have been waiting and waiting for a chance to use the chunky characters in Golddrew for a fall project, and I've already featured Mountecarlo in this Insta post to major success. These don't follow a "theme" per se, but they do all invoke in me a sense of nostalgia that can add maturity and age to any project!

No. 1 Alburgone

I absolutely love the feel of Alburgone, because it reminds me of the fonts used on cool early 20th century apothecary branding (which, honestly, is my jam). I can see this on a vintage-inspired beauty brand, a fun kids clothing tag, or even for a craft industry like forging or heirloom quality furniture design!

No. 2 Mountecarlo

This font has been on my Illustrator dashboard just waiting for fall! I do love a good script monoline, and Mountecarlo has so much movement to it--especially the M, N, and Q characters. This would make an excellent main or secondary type face with a strong serif for a more classic brand, or with a bold sans for a more contemporary mix. It also comes with swashes!

No. 3 Golddrew

Just as Mountecarlo was sitting on my dashboard, Golddrew remains there for the perfect project. I know how I want to use it, but haven't gotten around to putting it together yet. I like how bold and 70s this font is, a style which is very trendy at the moment. Perfect for a contemporary brand with a distinctly vintage style--think Real Fun, Wow!.

No. 4 Folkner Stamp

Folkner is probably my favorite of this bunch, just because of the texture and shape of the characters. This font would be perfect for a brewery, an apothecary-based skincare company, or a restaurant. I love how they have paired it with a hand-lettered script font on their Creative Market listing!
