Chariots of Fire

As a graphic designer I enjoy creating strong typographic contrasts and hierarchies by mixing type with different styles from different sources. However, finding typefaces that actually go well together can be both time and money consuming. 'Chariots of Fire' attempts to beat this challenge by offering a collection of expressive styles within the same family. In action the type family is a dialogue between rhythm and breakdowns.

Within the family all the styles have a strong historical reference. But instead of actually looking historically convincing, I like to think that the letters are trying too hard to do just that. They almost look like they have been overcooked in their own classicism, hence the sentimental family name.
