CA Nor­mal Serif is the per­fect com­pan­ion to its grotesque brother CA Nor­mal. But it is not just a ser­ifed equiv­a­lent. It has a char­ac­ter of its own while pre­serv­ing the prin­ci­pal pro­por­tions and the idea of quirk­i­ness. It was not the aim to build a type­face that can imme­di­ately be iden­ti­fied as a rel­a­tive of CA Nor­mal. The inten­tion was to cre­ate a match­ing type­face in aspects of aes­thetic and con­cept. Whereas com­monly serif-companions to grotesques are old-style or slab-serif, CA Nor­mal Serif is sit­u­ated between mod­ern and slab-serif type­faces.
This kind of fonts is not too pop­u­lar at the moment, but maybe it will be in a few years, who knows? In the mean­while: Trust your taste. CA Nor­mal Serif is a lit­tle bit of an uncom­fort­able type­face. Noth­ing is smooth and cozy. It picks up ele­ments of clas­sic news­pa­per type as brought to us by Chauncey H. Griffith’s leg­i­bil­ity group,  shar­ing the fla­vor of abra­sive details and “slab­bish” ser­ifs. But the pro­por­tions are more con­densed than the ones of its pre­de­ces­sors giv­ing it a bit more ele­gance, which moves it closer to the aes­thetic of scotch romans.

CA Nor­mal Serif has entered the final stage of test­ing and edit­ing and will soon be avail­able here.

This is a decon­struc­tive one. Some of you remem­ber those days where you where called ‘out­sider’ because you never used those type­faces your friends used? With those mem­o­ries in mind we offer you a type­face with the tag: ‘out­sider’. Cre­ated exclu­sively for a cat­a­log for the exhi­bi­tion ‘Hail to the King, Baby!’, CA Hail to the King is based upon dif­fer­ent let­ters taken from hand­made signs from all over the world. You will find a lot of unex­pected spe­cials: irreg­u­lar char­ac­ter sizes and styles (upper­case char­ac­ters are bold; low­er­case char­ac­ters are in reg­u­lar style) every­thing that makes ‘CA Hail to the King’ so diver­si­fied and unpre­dictable. In addi­tion to west Euro­pean dia­crit­ics, an exten­sive cen­tral Euro­pean char­ac­ter set was added, includ­ing some very nice styl­is­tic alter­nates. Now avail­able!
