LDN Southbank is a sturdy but stylish new slab serif designed by Paul Harpin, one of two new interlinked Egyptian style typefaces inspired by London during the Festival of Britain era.
Southbank’s art school cousin, the more experimental LDN Northbank, shares the same typographic skeleton but features higher contrast strokes and diametrically opposing counters.
Paul was influenced by his research into the many brilliant graphic designers studying at London’s Royal College of Art in the early 1950s; mid-century modernism with a twist.
Both fonts pay tribute to the great designers of that time, the likes of of FHK Henrion, Gordon Cullen and especially Charles Hasler, chairman of the Typographic Panel for the 1951 Festival.
