New Clear Era

New Clear Era is part of an ongoing project investigating classicism and legibility.

The regular version is the base font. Numerous permutations are performed on this underlying skeleton. Also investigated are the ideas of an extended type family, and trying to understand what makes a contemporary legible, serif typeface.

The Mix versions combine characters from the Roman and Display to make quirky fonts that can be comfortably used for setting text. Mix One is the most quirky; Mix Three is the least.

Originally designed in 1999. Updated in 2004 with assistance from PsyOps.
