Type Gallery – Fairfield

Font Designer: Rudolph Ruzicka, 1939
“Writing is there to be read … The reader expects visual assistance when reading. He doesn’t want to be distracted while trying to understand the thought processes within a text …”, says type designer Rudolph Ruzicka.
Ruzicka’s Fairfield®, from 1939, was based closely on historical predecessors, but also expresses the spirit of the 30s and 40s. A departure from ornament and imitation of style and a lean towards clear simplicity was to give rise to the world without flourishes and embellishment.
Formal details, borrowing heavily from the designs of Art deco, give Fairfield font its characteristic appearance. The balanced proportions of uppercase and lowercase letters, x-heights, ascenders and descenders result in a well-balanced type image which is very easy to read.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
