Martin Archer - Font Designer of ITC Eastwood

Martin Archer

British designer Martin Archer created the font ITC Eastwood™ in 1997.
ITC Eastwood is named for Clint Eastwood. Archer was looking for a plain oldstyle typeface with open lower case forms and used Stempel Garamond™ as his starting point, although the result ended up well beyond its origins. In small point sizes the typeface looks interestingly rough while at display sizes it looks like a 16th century French typeface and its unique details come forward.

ITC Eastwood Font Family is part of the ITC Library OpenType Edition.
