Typeface notes:

Tim Donaldson, creator of Banshee and Coriander, brings us Postino - a quirky display type modeled roughly on the typewriter face, Courier. Sturdy yet playful, Postino is aptly named by the Italian word for postman or courier. Skimming through a back issue of Visible Language (a journal about written language), Tim was taken aback by the robust beauty of an emboldened Courier typeface. The book designer had used the face to make “cheeky little headlines and they looked superb.” Tim decided the world needed a typeface like this but one that “poked its tongue out” even a bit more, while still wearing its functional clothes. After doodling for some time, Postino and its Italic companion worked their way into being on Tim’s computer screen. Not-entirely-serious headlines, CD covers, children’s books, and advertising copy are all excellent uses for punchy Postino.
