Hamada – Font of the Week

Type Gallery – Hamada

Font Designer: Gaynor Goffe, 2007
Linotype’s Hamada™ typeface is a powerfully built script design that brings the work of English calligrapher Gaynor Goffe into the digital world. It captures the feeling of the pen on the page; ink edges out from the contours, and moves across curves, letters, and lines! This creates a delightful image, especially in larger point sizes. Thanks to OpenType, Hamada creates an impression very much like that of real calligraphy – an effect that is similar to Linotype’s famous Zapfino® typeface. Most of the letters in Hamada have alternate forms. The typeface also includes a number of ligatures, as well as swashes to appear at the end of a line of text. Hamada is a contemporary typeface for the 21st century, not only because of its technical sophistication, but also because of its casual, loose appearance and wide character.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
