Hatton Typeface

Designed as a collaboration with Montreal based type foundry Pangram Pangram, Hatton is a homage to the history of the London district, Hatton Garden. Nestled in the design studio’s former home, Clerkenwell, Hatton Garden is famous as London’s jewellery quarter and is at the heart of the diamond trade in the UK.The studios worked together to distill the character and nuances of local street signage, ghost signs, shop fronts and landmarks that are unique to the Hatton Garden location, while also capturing the imperfection and hand rendered nature of the found lettering. The result is an eclectic and idiosyncratic typeface that expresses the history of craft in the area through a set of unique characters, ligatures and glyphs.
