Kindersley Street (AKA Kindersley Grand Arcade)

Image of the Grand Arcade font

Our new face based on KINDERSLEY MOT has been designed, for the Grand Arcade, Cambridge. It will have a newly designed lower-case to fit the original capitals from David Kindersley’s drawings which have now properly digitised.

This can be downloaded for free, thanks to Grosvenor who paid for David’s 1950s face to be properly digitised – David would be most upset to see the terrible variations of his KINDERSLEY MOT. So please use this proper version.

It also has an added lower-case and it works surprisingly well as a typeface, but particularly as a titling face.

Image of the Pulle font

A new titling typeface with a difference. It’s called Pulle, and instead of different weights it has 1000 different heights, starting from ‘tall’ and getting taller. Lida named it after her brother, Paul Pulle, who sadly died in the year 2000.

Lida has been drawing and cutting this particular letterform for over 20 years.

The face was used publicly for the first time for a glass panel in the recently refurbished Cambridge Central Library.
