Aptly - The concept is “Geo-Soft”: characters are constructed from arcs of circle connected by orthogonal straight lines, with few diagonals as soft edges are carefully balanced against rigorous structure.
Bank Gothic is a very popular choice as a titling face for science fiction books, posters and countless television and movie titles. It is also a popular typeface for use in computer games and digital graphics.
What intrigued me about Buslingthorpe was the virtuoso challenge it presented, of designing a typeface that would, despite a ridiculously tiny x-height, still possess a coherent harmony between upper and lower case, and read comfortably. So I made these my benchmarks, and determined to outdo them in dramatic fashion. —Nick Shinn, Orangeville, March 2021

About Yellow Design Studio
From what started out in Madison, Wisconsin in 2004 as a graphic design studio, Rena and Ryan Martinson have created Yellow Design Studio, a type design and fine arts studio now based in Sanibel, Florida since 2014. Having found a way to blend two very different mediums of design, into a single business, each of them have focused their skill in a unique niche (Ryan creating fonts and Rena, her fine art).
Since the premiere of Ryan’s first font, Magesta Script, Ryan has continuously produced high-quality and immensely popular fonts including Veneer, Verb, Anodyne, and Thirsty Script. His work has been featured in huge campaigns by notable companies like American Express, Dodge Ram, CBS, Burger King, Starbucks, Target, American Music Awards, ESPN, HuluPLus, Whole Foods Market, World Market, National Geographic Channel, Asics, Purina, Hightail, and Dakine.phic design and typography studio based in Madison, Wisconsin.
