Andy Backhouse’s Work Blog
When it comes to Web Design – I am quite keen to experiment with my own sites; I figure that I am only going to learn something new by trying something new. So, with this idea backing me up, I changed the font on www.andybackhouse.com.
The font I have plumped for is Orkney.
Designed by Samuel Oakes and Alfredo Marco Pradil – Orkney is a geometric typeface designed with clarity and legibility in mind. Orkney is a geometric typeface designed and conceptualised by Samuel Oakes. The goal in creating the typeface was to have a unique yet functional typeface that can be used for a wide variety of projects on print or screen. Italics were added later by Cristiano Sobral.
