In April 2009 The Entente was commissioned to design an on-going identity for artist and printmaker, Jake Spicer. The project’s bespoke typeface, was re-cut multiple times over a period of 9 months (becoming a personal labour of love), before arriving at the current commercial cut. The name ‘Fortescue’ is derived from a dwelling in Sidmouth, Devon, England where Spicer began his career.
