Background

Cherritt is described by its foundry as a ‘go anywhere’ family it can be equally at home captioning a sepia tinted vintage photograph, on the cover of a children’s adventure book, a retro-futuristic design or a travel poster.

Cherritt has also been described as a ‘bullnosed’ serif face, because of its rounded off serifs. What that phrase may not convey is the friendly, approachable nature of this large family of faces.

The design was originally inspired by traditional draftsmens’ hand-drawn serif lettering, but has been given a precise geometric flavor that suits it for work owing its inspiration to any era, from Victorian times through to the modern.

They are ideal for headings and poster work, but also for setting small volumes of text. Four weights are included in the family, as well as wide, expanded and condensed forms, true small capitals and openface forms.
