A modern, digital revival of a typeface from one of the world’s most celebrated graphic designers.
Glaser Stencil was created in 1967 by US illustrator and graphic designer Milton Glaser. He first used the font for a Carnegie Hall bill poster in 1969. The letterforms referenced traditional stencilling techniques of the 1940s and 1950s and became synonymous with American graphic design of that period. Glaser later went on to develop the famous ‘I Heart New York’ logo that’s still widely used today.
As graphic design went digital, Glaser Stencil’s bold weight was adapted for the computer age. However, its lighter weights weren’t modified for digital use and more or less disappeared.
Working with Milton Glaser directly, we’ve restored all of Glaser Stencil’s forgotten weights and made them accessible to the digital generation for the first time. An all-caps font, F37 Glaser Stencil comes in four weights — Extra Light, Light, Medium, and Demi (although we’d recommend that Extra Light is only used for large display purposes). F37 Glaser Stencil also supports various languages, including Cyrillic.
We offer a range of licences on our website to suit different projects, needs and budgets. If you’d like to discuss developing a brand font with us, please get in touch.
