The TRUDEAU fonts are based on the wrought iron architectural lettering at Albany Law School. The arch and lettering (at left) were designed as a small part of a major campus renovation in the late 1960s, designed by the architect Robert Louis Trudeau, founder of Trudeau/Architects. Formerly called “Law School,” the font and its new rail-less companion have been named to reflect their original designer.
Another of my Albany-inspired fonts is PHARMACY.
The regular Trudeau font preserves the look of letters held between top and bottom rails. The font includes several pairs of brackets which cap the ends and create a sort of cartouche. The companion Trudeau Sans has no rails, making the font much more flexible.
The complete version of each font includes caps, some alternates in the lowercase positions, numbers, limited punctuation, but no accented characters.
