H&FJ's Sentinel



NE MOGU VJEROVATI! Hoefler & Frere-Jones su izbacili svoju najnoviju font familiju - SENTINEL. Kako oni kazu, za sve koji su patili sto Clarendon nema vise tezina i, jos vaznije, italike. Do I see a fresh entry for my Fav Font Top 10!!?

Familija od 12 stilova (light, book, medium, semibold, bold i black, pa sve to i italic) pojavila se u pravom trenutku, bas kada na sve strane trubim o revivalu Clarendona sirom sveta. Sve je zapravo pocelo pre godinu dana, kada sam u studiju, tragajuci za font kombinacijom za manifestaciju Be in Belgrade odlucila da Clarendon bude primarni font. Sada, godinu dana posle, Clarendon je back u velikom stilu. Shiseido Collagen kampanja u Japanu i grafika za film Frost/Nixon samo su dva primera. (predivni Tretorn logo, pa redizajn logoa Architectural Review magazina, naslovna strana knjige Design Disasters Stevena Hellera, Dzejmijeva knjiga Jamie at Home, this water...)

A sada je stigao Sentinel koji me je obradovao isto kao sto me je obradovalo pojavljivanje Akkurata, apdejtovane Helvetike. Naravno da pojava novih verzija originale ne izbacuje iz upotrebe, samo je dobro imati izbor i ozbiljnu font familiju isprojektovanu na ozbiljnim temeljima kvaliteta potvrdjenog protokom vremena na raspolaganju.

I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! Hoefler & Frere-Jones released their latest font family - SENTINEL. For those who craved for more weights and italics in Clarendon family, as they say. Do I see a fresh entry for my Fav Font Top 10!!?

Sentinel is consisted of 12 styles (light, book, medium, semibold, bold and black, and italics for all of them) and it appeared at the right moment, just when I noted the current revival of Clarendon worldwide. It all started for me a year ago, when searching for the font combo for this project called
Be in Belgrade we've been working on, I decided to use Clarendon as the primary font. Now, one year after, Clarendon is back in style. Shiseido Collagen campaign in Japan i titles for Frost/Nixon are just two of my fav examples.

And now, Sentinel came and delighted me in the way Akkurat appearing as the updated Helvetica was refreshing. It is understood that the release of the new versions doesn't exclude the originals, it's just great having the option to choose from the variety of subtle hues and add this
font family finely and smartly chiseled to follow its famous predecessor in style to my _FONTS_ folder.
