Tradesman Collection

The Backstory Scoop

Rough-hewn industrial geometric typefaces have been used and admired from early wood types through the digital age of Machine and beyond, but they have lacked an expansive enough family to become a true workhorse. The Tradesman family finds its origin of inspiration in the Craftsman tool company logo, and from there expands to type megafamily.

Tradesman celebrates the angular octagonal forms of industrial lettering, transcending its brand inspired origin to give birth to a font family that pulls on modern and historical styles. It inherited its reliably tough tone from the all capitals lettering that inspired it, and goes on to include a lowercase, small caps style, and a comprehensive range of widths and weights, creating a straightforward, uncompromising collection of typefaces that lend a solid foundation and a broad range of expression for designers.


Here's what's included with the Tradesman Collection bundle:

  • 400 glyphs per style - including Capitals, Lowercase, Numerals, Punctuation and an extensive character set that covers multilingual support of latin based languages. (see the 6th graphic for a preview of the characters included)
  • 40 fonts in 4 width subfamilies with 4 SmallCaps families: Extra Condensed, Condensed, Standard & Wide.
  • 5 weights per subfamily: Light, Book, Regular, Bold, & Black.
  • Fonts are provided in TTF & OTF formats. The TTF format is the standard go to for most users, although the OTF and TTF function exactly the same.

Here's why the Tradesman Collection is for you:

  • You're in need of rugged industrial font family with a big range of weights and widths
  • You're love that Craftsman letter styling, and want to design anything within that genre
  • You're looking for an alternative to ITC Machine with a more versatile range of styles.
  • You're looking for a sweet steampunk reminiscent typestyle free of over-ornamentation.
  • You just like to collect quality fonts to add to your design arsenal
