My first attempt at designing a typeface. One of my favorite typefaces is Clarendon, but its thick strokes make it difficult to use in body text. So I wanted to create a bracketed slab-serif that was useable in both display and text. I took inspiration from Clarendon, Century Schoolbook, Serifa, and Hoefler & Frere-Jones’s popular Archer. Aeris is really still a work in progress.
