Burford font family
Burford font family is a new serif font family created by the American type designer Kimmy Kirkwood. In fact, while on a journey in Europe, she was so impressed by the large variety of different scripts she encountered that she instantly began sketching letters that later grew into a full scale typeface. It was later shaped and digitalized resulting in a beautiful layer-based font with a distinctive retro look and taste of the 1920’s.
The most impressive feature of the Burford font family is the fact that it is comprised of 18 layering typefaces. There are 5 are bottom, 5 base, 3 top and two additional sets of extras. They are designed in such manner as to co-exist perfectly when used one on top of the other with each of them having a set of Stylistic alternatives for 9 letters. But Kimmy Kirkwood spared a thought for those who cannot use premier design programs and thus won’t be able to use the effect of the layers. In such case 13 of the 18 fonts or the so called Burford Basic package can be used separately with great success. Also a very rich multilingual support is provided for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic based languages.
We feel that two of the fonts deserve a special mention – Extras Set A and Extras Set B. They offer around 100 elements each that work greatly with the other 16 fonts and complement them perfectly. Extras include catchwords, line breaks, anchors, banners, borders, corners, etc.
As it was mentioned above Burford typeface family is designed by Kimmy Kirkwood and released by her type foundry Kimmy Design. A Chapman University graduate, Kimmy is a very talented young designer that has already produced quite a few bestselling font families (check the links below). She has a wide range of interests apart from the type design – logo/brand design, retouching and photo manipulation which could be the explanation behind her success.
