A typeface created for the exhibition, Made in Birmingham. Now available commercially.

Based on the industrial feeling typography from the 1886 exhibition, atypical of the decorative Victorian era, Central Avenue is a simple sans serif that retains the awkwardness and personality that the hand-painted letterforms had.

Rather than imagining the lowercase characters, Central Avenue has been designed with a Victorian-esque superscripted alternative.

Central Avenue is designed by Studio Makgill and is available exclusively from Colophon →
