Eskorte is a hardworking Latin-Arabic type family with an uncomplicated, regular appearance that conveys a crisp, businesslike tone. Its compact range of styles has been designed for easy use by non-designers in offices of legal and academic institutions, and corporate environments. Eskorte supports Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, and over ninety languages using the Latin script.
The various styles were designed together, resulting in a smooth, coherent style across the family. The italics take on livelier, more fluid forms that echo the design of the Arabic, allowing them to sit perfectly together, while the extrabold adds punch to official announcements and notices.
The Arabic was designed in consultation with Titus Nemeth.
Every year I push a design challenge on myself about myself. I love redoing my personal logo, especially because I'm just a student designer and my "personal" brand is still being built upon. My initials are D, L, and S, and I've always had a problem piecing them together based on the shapes and high x-height of the L in comparison to the bowls of the D and S. Recently, I've been very interested in geometric monograms and especially how the specific letters--triangles for D's and L's, and a swirl for the S--could overlap to become my personal logo and being slightly legible while really deriving from the letters as opposed to clearly showing them.
These are the product of a late-night brainstorming process. Any thoughts?
