Osgard Pro is a powerful, luxurious Typeface, adopting the fluid curvaceous elements of Romanesque typography and combining them with the Gothic style of Blackletter. Forging the two creates a far softer, more versatile, fashion based typeface; with beautifully distinct qualities. Strong influences came from The Ribble Valley, not far from my location, where J.R.R.Tolkien worked on The Lord of the Rings. Landmarks such as Stonyhurst, the River Shirebourn and the surrounding areas are great places for Medieval/ Fantastical inspiration.
1000 swashes, pre-made Conjunction Ligatures, Stylistic Alternates, Discretionary Ligatures, Contextual Alternates and all the OpenType features you need, make it perfect for applications – logos, fashion, branding and editorials. To make it as user friendly as possible, an additional swash.ttf has also been included, for absolute freedom.
