Underw

Underw is a text typeface designed to work on books.
It is a contemporary Serif typeface with a hint of Nouvaeu style.
The diagonal stress, and the generous x-height makes Underw very legible at small size and much appreciated when used at display size as you can look at all its details.
The font has been designed and used for in-house work at Fraser Muggeridge studio:
– ‘Magnificent obsessions’ Book. 2015
– ‘Magnificent obsessions’ exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery. 2015
– ‘Catch me daddy’ film poster (name of the directors and actors). 2014
– ‘Rite of Passage: The Early Years of Vienna Actionism 1960-1996’ book. 2014
