Description

Ferryman is designed for everyday use – a Blackletter typeface for the contemporary reader. Unfamiliar Blackletter characters have been replaced with adapted latin characters or with letters from other historical scripts that are more legible to a modern audience.
Ferryman is the antidote to the overused geometric and neogrotesk styles. An expressive display typeface with a strong character, it is perfectly suited for counterculture projects and progressive concepts e.g. in visual art, indie music, and alternative lifestyles.
With nine weights and corresponding italics Ferryman offers a wide range of creative possibilities. Each style offers 590 glyphs supporting all Western-, Eastern- and Central-European languages and comes with four sets of numbers and various currency symbols.
