Background

An experimental hybrid, situated somewhere between a sans and a serif. New Global was inspired by the deconstructive aesthetic found in a display face created by designer Barry Deck as seen in Details magazine, circa 1990. Mr Deck later released a significantly modified commercial version of the original prototype headline face through the Thirstype foundry.

The design leans towards “grunge”, but the face still has some contemporary style. The “ink traps” are odd details from the past, giving the typeface a unique flavor. Originally released by T-26, then moved to GarageFonts, New Global has found a new home at Veer.
