Fontsmith: FS Pimlico

Fontsmith: FS Pimlico

Fontsmith have just released their (sometimes shiny) new typeface, FS Pimlico, designed by Fernando Mello. As is the case with FS Blake, I’m particularly interested in the heaviest weight, FS Pimlico Black. You can certainly see Fernando’s passion for vintage disco / synthpop shining through.

Look out for the booklet (designed by Thompson and printed by Team) — it should be hitting doormats and pigeon holes this week.

Here’s a bit more info form the Fontsmith site and a few more pictures…

“FS Pimlico is a vibrant type. Inspired by brushwriting, Pimlico is a versatile and adoring type system capable of bringing a very human and comfortable feel to small texts, headlines, signage systems, corporate identities and large billboard ads. The three weights and true italics come packed with cheerful and enthusiastic details, which remain concise and effective for varied typographical purposes. Beautiful swashes are available for all weights along with a lovely and bubbly glow font for graphic headline goodness.”
