Type Gallery – ITC Rennie Mackintosh

Font Designer: Phill Grimshaw, 1996
ITC Rennie Mackintosh font is based on the handwriting and drawings of Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who was widely acclaimed for his highly original buildings, interiors and furniture produced at the turn of the century in Glasgow, Scotland.
The ITC Rennie Mackintosh font family includes two weights, bold and light. The bold font design is very close in weight and color to Mackintosh’s original hand lettering, while the lighter weight was designed to be suitable for use in smaller point sizes. Like his architecture, his hand lettering was revolutionary and designed to communicate not only his written words, but to fit perfectly into the precise nature of his architectural plans and proposals.
These fonts include many alternate characters as well as short word settings that Mackintosh created to use when space was limited. This innovative type family is the result of extensive research and collaboration between ITC and the Glasgow School of Art.

Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
