1815 Typeface

Inspired by The Union Bar sign on Bridge Street, Cambridge
For this project, I created my own typeface. I explored Cambridge for ideas and gathered pictures for my research to find the key inspiration. The typeface has the name ‘1815’ as it is inspired by ‘The Union Bar’ sign on Bridge Street in Cambridge. I imagined seeing this typeface for classic cars, so for my Type Specimen I decided to create my own Corvette Sting Ray Chevrolet advert, inspired by many from the time period.
