Fabriga, designed by LuxTypo., speaks a familiar language in a distinctive voice. All emblematic decisions were informed by ideas around clarity and tone. Fabriga’s structure and warmth is influenced by how it’s character set is approached as an ensemble while still exploring individual ‘creative’ opportunities as they posed themselves throughout the process. Fabriga sets out to take a supportive role as a font family, understanding that one of its great strengths is through its diversity in application and composition.

Fabriga Styles

Fabriga has five feature-rich styles with built-in Stylistic Alternates and extensive language support

Greg Lindy / LuxTypo. / Los Bangeles featureNovember 29, 2014

‘We discovered Greg’s work online and were immediately impressed by it. His portfolio includes assignments for The Getty, Sundance Institute, and the Autry Museum, among others. After contacting him, we received a booklet of his called ‘Hecho in Los Angeles’ together with an awesome shirt. This led to us having a great conversation about Greg’s path as a designer and typographer, the industry’s changing landscape and what the future holds.

‘Tell us something about yourself

‘I’ve been in LA pretty much my entire life… You know, moving here as a small kid I’ve spent quite some time, I’ve seen the good and the bad. The good is, quite honestly, is the weather and the openness, when you’re not tied down to a certain place. It’s also part of the drawback that things are so spread out, but you can go the beach one day, you can go to the desert… The majority of days are really nice, actually the funny thing is it rarely rains, but it’s raining today! (laughs) The weather does have quite a bit of an effect, yeah.

‘Creatively-wise, what’s really nice about Los Angeles is that it’s messy, it’s not contained, you have to work and search for it. Whereas I think in some place, particularly in New York, it’s all very nicely packaged, and LA is a little bit messier. It’s kinda like the treasure hunt, when you search and you find it, it tends to have more value for you. Also I think the attitude here is different… There’s a lot more optimism, everything seems possible. It’s not ‘fenced in’, so to speak, like maybe New York, or even maybe San Francisco, it’s very open and expectations are kind of low. You know how New York sort of thumbs their nose at Los Angeles for not having culture, I think that’s great because when cool stuff happens it’s even more special.’

New Release: ColetteJune 6, 2012

Vllg luxtypo news colette

As much as it is warm and friendly, Colette is structured. Designed by Greg Lindy to be suitable for a wide range of applications, Colette is elegant and reserved in its lighter weights and more boisterous in its heavier. Originally inspired by the birth of Greg’s daughter, Colette was actually developed as the typographic component for a capital campaign for a regional children’s hospital. Since the campaign’s completion, Colette has undergone refinements that include the addition of weights, italics and an extensive character set to support an array of latin-based languages.

New Release: GustanFebruary 1, 2011

Vllg luxtypo news gustan

Gustan is an orderly type family for a wide range of applications. Throughout the design process, all idiosyncratic decisions were informed by ideas around structure and utility. The fact that certain character combinations align in a particular way is more about bringing order and harmony to the word as opposed to a ‘stylistic’ trait. Further, Gustan’s openness is a response to the requirements for smaller settings as opposed to the desire to achieve a ‘modern’ tone. Focusing on these functional concerns frees up Gustan as much as it defines, making it flexible and expressive in application to a designer’s desire.
