Guinevere Pro


Guinevere Pro


uinevere Pro is a typeface designed by Icelandic art director and vector manipulation guru Sigurdur Armannsson. The project started in 2001 as rudimentary hand-drawn sketches of a few letters built from and around modular concepts, then became an experiment with four goals:

  • Construct an original alphabet from a specific set of predetermined modules.
  • See how certain letter forms built without said modules would behave within the totality of the module-constructed alphabet.
  • See if certain letters would actually enforce their own shapes to be drawn a certain way within the totality of the typeface. Likewise, see if the totality of the alphabet demands that individual letters be drawn in a specific way, and if so, how much room for variation would there be?
  • See how all of the above reacts/changes to implementing the alphabet across different weights.

The experiment was finessed and re-worked over a whole decade of technology changes, and Guinevere Pro is the final outcome.

All four fonts come with built-in small caps, alternates, ligatures, and support for the majority of Latin languages.
