Selsdon is a wedge serif text typeface for small sized print and in-depth reading. It also is the typeface that you are reading right now.
Made for a target size of eight points, Selsdon is focused on legibility and tries to keep flashy details to a minimum.
I began designing Selsdon as part of the intern training program at Dalton Maag and it is still under development.
Selsdon today includes upper and lower cases, tabular numerals, basic extended latin diacritics, standard ligatures, basic currency symbols and more.
Many thanks to all of Dalton Maag’s team, specially Ron Carpenter for all the help with it, and to Daniel Rocha for help with the samples.
