nav_down 20.9.13 / CLAVO – NEW FROM DADA STUDIO


A big welcome to Dada Studio and their great Clavo typeface. Clavo is a curvy slab design that is highly flexible and multi-tasking. Warmth, subtle details, classical proportions and traditional forms combine to provide pure harmony.

Ten upright weights from thin to black are complimented by matching italics. The fonts include comprehensive language support as well as ligatures, discretionary ligatures, small caps, old style figures, alternates, tabular figures, fractions and many other OpenType features.

June 2015 - Clavo is no longer available from our store.




Geotica is an elegant and fashionable didone typeface with extreme contrasts. But this appealing design goes much further by using a range of construction elements to create a variety of forms.

The idea behind Geotica was to build different font types out of a range of geometric elements. Open wire frames could be left as outline character shapes or be partially or completely filled. When colours are introduced to the fill elements a broad range of permutations are possible.

There are then four different grades of line thickness to increase variability and provide even more setting possibilities. Each line weight font set comprises four font styles: outline, solid, engraved and a cutaway filler for adding colour variations.

Geotica is fully loaded with OpenType features and additional character forms that include swashes, final forms, ligatures, discretionary ligatures and ornaments.

Download this sample pdf of Geotica to view the full beauty and flexibility of this font building package. Geotica is available as a Complete Set for just £64, Set One, Set Two, Set Three or Set Four for £25 each or as individual fonts for £10.49 each.

It is a typeface conceived and designed for a wide variety of uses such as corporate, advertising and editorial work.

The Fenland range comprices 7 upright weights plus italics and can be purchased as a Complete Family or as 7 individual packs that contain one upright and one italic font.
