A self-initiated typeface designed to be a unique, yet functional typeface that can be used for a wide variety of projects on print or screen.
Svalfjord is my long awaited font release. It began life as some feathered sketches on layout paper, and over time has become what you see before you. I didn't follow any inspiration directly, I tried to make my font my own and subconciously the feel of other typefaces crept in.
With thanks to Alfredo, this font was formed into an OTF file with multiple weights as seen below. Known as Orkney, the open-source download link is available on my Behance. I also produced the accompanying specimen booklet that was photographed by Alex Duffill. I wanted to give a modern and minimal feel to represent the font appropriately. Svalfjord is my latest rendition of the typeface. After a process of analysis and correction, Samuel Powell and I completed Svalfjord. This is effectively an update to Orkney, continuing its legacy.
