Font Designer – Janice Prescott Fishman

Janice Prescott Fishman designed the highly legible Shannon™ font family together with Kris Holmes exclusively for Compugraphic in 1982. Its design blends ancient Irish calligraphy from the Book of Kells and contemporary letterforms. Shannon is a modified sans serif typeface with slightly flared terminals that give the effect of serifs, thus aiding readability.
Shannon is ideal for a whole range of uses: advertising and magazines to slides and data sheets.
The Know How section offers detailed background knowledge to deal with all enquiries about the use of fonts.
