In the 1800s, display type families commonly included interesting variants like shadows and inlines, and sometimes even intricately engraved flowers, leaves and fruit.
Coming up with contemporary ways to make decorated type can be a real challenge, but in this case the main idea was to keep it simple. Commissioned by Las Vegas Weekly, these two variants on the original slab version of Stag capture the unique spirit of Las Vegas. The two weights use very different approaches to the idea of building type out of dots: the Bold follows a strict grid, while the Thin faithfully traces the contours of Stag Thin.
