Winner—Communication Arts 2014 Award of Excellence–Typeface Design

Recently selected as one of "Our Favorite Typefaces of 2013” by

Dark Angel is the first completely new take on the traditional “blackletter” font style seen in decades. It began its journey towards the light years ago when this style was born as a sketch for a new logo for the California Angels baseball team (renamed shortly thereafter the Anaheim Angels). The Angels logo never happened, but that sketch has risen from the dead and become the basis for this brand new font design—and was also the source for the name. It’s kind of blackletter in feel, but as a display font it’s so much more. It is far more legible than most “Old English” or “Gothic Script” styles, and incorporates many features never before seen in them, such as swashes, tails and a plethora of ligatures.


When purchased Dark Angel comes as a set of three fonts: Dark Angel Regular—its regular solid form, Dark Angel Underlight—a handtooled font, and Dark Angel Highlight. With Dark Angel Highlight layered over Dark Angel Regular, you can achieve two–color typesetting when the highlight and the base font are assigned two different colors.
