This design took me on a voyage across continents and cultures, its look taking shape in many forms. Western, tropical, and vintage old-world with a modern touch, Nelson is perfectly suited for headlines and logos, packaging and advertising. Featuring four sizes of capital letters – large, standard, petite and small, over 150 alternates and swashes and two sets of decorated initials (Nelson Rugged) – this titling font makes crafting a headline or logo a fun and interesting pursuit.
Nelson is named after and dedicated to my friend, fellow instructor and former design professor, Gary P. Nelson. Designer, watercolorist and avid hiker, ‘Rugged Nelson’ opened my eyes to the world of lettering and type design and has been the ultimate friend and mentor.
