Northwood Typeface

A revival of 1930s hand cut type from the enamel street nameplates in the London Borough of Lambeth. The letters are redrawn and rationalised with consistent stroke weights and serifs whilst maintaining the character and idiosyncracies of the originals. This typeface is now used across Lambeth on newly manufactured enamel signs.
