Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

One of our proudest projects ever: the typography for the Canadian Charter of Rights And Freedoms, in both official languages. We chose Carl Dair’s Cartier typeface, at the time the most prominent Canadian-designed typeface, having been commissioned by the Governor-General as a celebration of Canada’s centenary in 1967. We set that job on our Berthold Alphatype phototypesetting equipment, before Adobe fonts, while you still had to develop, stabilize, fix, wash, dry and wax every galley. Those were good days, Lynne, Betty, Lesli, Acstfiwa, and Quorum Graphics!
