Claremont is a work-in-progress typeface inspired by the creation of English landscape gardens. Its form was originally influened by early 18th century typographer Fournier le Jeune’s typefaces, but began to become more contemporary when using the architectural layouts of English landscape gardens as part of the visual research.

In an attempt to merge the fluid, open space of the gardens, and the sharp, restricted manors into one typeface, both soft ball terminals and sharp, elongated serifs are used. This typeface is still a work-in-progress; it will be complete in the fall of 2020. While it can work in smaller copy, it shines when used at a medium to large size, for example in posters or packaging design.
