Echo & Charlie
Introducing a new typeface Echo, a sans serif counterpart to the newly released Charlie, with subtle influence from the broad nib pen.
Introducing Echo, a sans serif counterpart to the previously published Charlie typeface, designed by Ross Milne, with the Cyrillic by Gayaneh Bagdasaryan and Greek by Natasha Raissaki. Echo is clear and direct, with subtle influences from the broad nib pen. The two typefaces developed more-or-less simultaneously, learning from the other.
We are also re-releasing an improved version of Charlie. There’s no definitive point when a typeface is ‘done’. Charlie was first ‘finished’ in the fall of 2008 at the completion of Ross’ thesis project at Type & Media course. Three years later, Charlie was finished for the second time when it was published. Now for the third time, Charlie is finished yet again with the extension and complete overhaul for the release of Charlie Pro, with support for over 140 languages across Latin, Cyrillic and Greek scripts, eleven weights with corresponding italics, numerous figure styles, expanded icons, arrows and too many currency symbols to count, it’s fair to say that Charlie has grown bigger than ever envisioned, with Echo, as a side product.
