Alimentary (adjective): relating to nourishment or sustenance. If you’ve seen my other fonts, you know I tend to lean into food-based names. This name has to do with food and science combined, so it’s double nerdy in the ways I like to be nerdy!
I started with Alimentary Medium, which was inspired by my shorter, wider font MacGuffin – I wanted something taller, narrower, with a hip and retro feel. When I finished the Medium weight, I felt like I wanted a Light weight. Then a Heavy weight. Then I figured, “what the heck,” and made an outline version of the Medium weight too.
In the end, I wound up with four members of the Alimentary family, each with over 700 glyphs! Not only do they all have the basics (A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and tons of punctuation), but they also each have 330 characters for European language support, and a limited selection of Greek, Coptic, and Cyrillic characters. Plus a double handful of alternates and ligatures to add a little variety to your designs!
And of course, all of the Alimentary fonts are super-smoothed, with reduced nodes and clean curves, so whether you’re cutting them out, printing them, engraving them, or using them in a way I haven’t even thought of, these fonts will be sharp and crisp!
