Since January 2012 we have been working with Castledown Primary School, Hastings, United Kingdom, and with head teacher Neil Small. The project started as a bespoke typeface commission but soon developed into an initiative to develop and unify typography throughout the school.
The commercial release of Castledown includes 8 cuts with both a proportional family (from Regular to Heavy with corresponding Fun Italic and Dotted cuts), as well as a Cursive script variant.
Castledown proportional family (Regular to Heavy including Fun versions) comes with Latin-A extended. Castledown Cursive variant currently has Latin-A support but will be extended to include Latin-A extended at a later date. It is supplied in OpenType (.OTF) format.
The Castledown family is also available in an educational version for schools, including instructional cuts, please contact us for pricing and more information.
Castledown Instructional Set allows for the teaching of letterforms via three cuts.
