Download Twine font
Twine is a contemporary serif font family designed by the multi-talented award-winning US designer Robbie de Villiers. Robbie’s main aim as a designer is the creation of beautiful typefaces that would reflect the personality of the users and will successfully transmit their thoughts and emotions. In achieving this goal he is greatly helped by his very rich background in the field of the type design and his extensive training in calligraphy. Back in 2003 Robbie established his Wilton Foundry with the intention of creating fonts that would be commercially successful – something that hasn’t change to the present day. In his work in the foundry he is nowadays assisted by his daughter Michelle Newton – a specialist in the packaging design.
Twine font family – their latest creation, is inspired by the vintage script Plantin designed in the early 20th century by Fritz Stelzer under the supervision of Frank Hinman Pierpont. It was very popular in its time and served as a major influence on the birth of the absolute classic Times New Roman in the 1930’s. Also, the name Twine is not accidental as the process of manufacturing the actual twine with its weaved strands of which the rope is made can be seen as similar to the font’s most distinctive characteristic – the individual pen strokes greatly emphasized with the stencil. They are combined in a perfect manner which accounts for the font’s high legibility and distinctive individual appearance. Overall, Twine font family works great in small sizes and is ideal for a vast number of applications such as packaging, commercials, logos, brochures, technology and museum displays, etc.
Twine comes in four weights – Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic.
