London Hoxton Square is an extra black, slab serif headline font, where every character is the same width and fits into a square for alignment purposes.
It works best for headlines when the leading is set tight to exactly match the inter character spacing. Traditional overshoots on glyphs such as C, O & S have been deliberately removed to facilitate the construction of close fitting, stackable text blocks.
When used at larger display sizes over several lines the end result is a chunky and dense mass of type which looks great on screen and in print.
Check out the font being used by the British Journal of Photography to stunning effect above.
It also makes terrific protest posters. TRUMP OUT! NO NEW SCOTTISH REFERENDUM!
An accompanying Half Square version was added so that headlines half the size of the original font will align on the same grid.
Have a try, make some perfectly aligning headlines, be happy, make some squares and do visit Hoxton Square, the vibrant centre of all things creative in London’s Shoreditch, just alongside Silicon Roundabout near Old Street tube station.
