Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif Released by Font Bureau

Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif
Cyrus Highsmith designed Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif (originally called Boomer Sans & Boomer Serif) as one series to tie the design of AARP The Magazine to AARP The Bulletin and AARP Segunda Juventud. Together the Salvos illustrate the guiding sentiments of the design director Courtney Murphy, “Hopeful, informative, alive, embracing and delightful. The right words draw people in, but on a subconscious level the typeface does that first.” FB 2007, 2011

Recent Rereleases: Moravia, Brandywine, Gaiseric, Stuttgart


We've recently updated several of our older fonts. The most recent of these are:

Moravia - based on unique poster lettering by Alphons Mucha.

Brandywine - based on original book caption lettering by legendary Amercian artist Howard Pyle.

Gaiseric - an update of one of my original font designs first released in 1998 and subsequently used in the Spiderwick books.

Stuttgart Gothic - based on 19th century calligraphy samples originally developed from early printed type.

Many of the updates include added characters and other refinements.
