About Nixon Script
Inspired by the typographic emancipation given voice by 1950s North American vernacular type. NixonScript's starting point was lettering found on a camera in a junk shop. Its development saw it transformed from a punchy sans-serif to a more thoughtful serif, with a lowered x-height and a vibe of almost priestly piousness. Think of the Pope dancing to chuck berry – you get the idea (I think). A bold italic is included as the additional font to emphasise that feeling of ‘freedom’. It is named after Richard Nixon, the only US President, to resign the office. It comments on how ‘the word’ seems more believable when printed on a physical page, no matter what lies it contains.
