Hawkhurst™ font family

Designed by Richard Yeend in 2002
The release of the Hawkhurst type family marks the arrival of a contemporary successor to the legion of classic British text faces. Designer Richard Yeend has created a successful reinterpretation of the transitional typeface style. A unique characteristic of this new design is the serifs, which differ slightly throughout the alphabet. Their playful terminals do not distract from legibility of the line; rather, they function in larger sizes as an intriguing element, alluring the reader into the text

Hawkhurst contains large x-heights and a wide base, in order to swiftly lead the eye across the page. To see for yourself, take a closer look at Yeend's clever design: included are two weights of text, italics, small caps, and alternate figures. Hawkhurst is part of the Take Type 5 collection, released in 2003 by Linotype."
