Smithee Font Family

Smithee Font Family

Smithee Font Family is a condensed sans-serif font for you to get your designs with simple, modern and creative look. Its mechanical – and rather straight forward – shapes (b, d, p, q…) balanced with some subtle, more organic, twists (“a”, “s”) immediately caught our eyes. In the wide range of displayed styles, we chose to develop the most condensed one which strongly reminded us of Edward Wright’s titling for Whitechapel Art Gallery’s 1956 exhibition “This Is Tomorrow” as well as the archetypal lines of condensed credits at the bottom of most movie posters.

“Série A” thus became “Smithee”, in reference to “Alan Smithee” – a commonly used pseudonym for directors whose film was clearly taken away from them and heavily recut against their will in ways that completely altered said film. Smithee expands into a 5 weights family to address a wide range of typographic needs. Filled with a bunch of alternate letters, Smithee’s industrial personality subtly shift to a more friendly tone as it gets bolder and thanks to its quirky shapes: a straight-sided condensed sans for expressive and daring typographic treatments!

Smithee Font is free for personal use. So, if you want to access more features and its full license contact Apex Type Foundry designer
