Font of the Week — Weston

Sometimes I do wonder why a typeface was given a particular name but in the case of “Weston” it’s pretty obvious. The Weston font harks back to the old wild west style of typography with block letters and bold serifs. It’s pretty easy to get that type of cowboy feeling with a type design because its so stereotypical as a style. On the flip side that’s what makes it hard to create a western style typeface that’s actually different and that’s exactly what Weston does so well.

If you look at Weston you’ll see the obvious throwback to the cowboy style of typeface but for some reason Weston also has a funky contemporary edge which makes it a new age hip typeface.
