This is a work in progress.
Earlier this year Mark and I started working on Mr Red’s re-designs. Back then we thought about creating a font system to be used on the sayings and promo material.
I am still far from being a type designer, and the process was taking too much time. We ended up deciding for the handmade designs and the font was put on hold.
Nonetheless, I kept on working on it in my spare time and managed to finish a few versions: Berlin, Berlina, Slaberlin and Überlin, all in three weights (Regular, Bold and X-Bold, plus Berlin’s Regular Italics).
They have been named after a song from R.E.M.’s latest album, which I was listening to over and over while working on the first versions of the main characters.
They work great in headlines, branding, packaging, as well as large format text and are free for your personal and commercial use.
My way of saying ‘Thank you’ to every and each of you who have been so supportive to my work.
PS: With time, the other variations will gradually come: In-line, outline, shadows, rounded, distressed, roman, and a few more.

First and foremost: I am not a type designer per se. I create fonts only in order to incorporate them to my designs.
Nevertheless, I have been often required to release them as functional fonts; so much that I had to give in and I've started converting some.
London is the first one.
It is inspired by and based upon the classic Bodoni (Black MT), with major adjustments on the loops, ears, spurs and overall width.
It was initially intended to be part of my submission to 'Show Us Your Type' Exhibition, on which I was invited to take part.
It is free for personal and commercial use. Have fun!
