HistoryBritish designer Jeremy Tankard began Blue Island in 1996 with the idea of creating a completely ligature-based roman typeface--an original but complex task that took until 1999 to realize. Individually, Blue Island's letters can appear a bit dismembered; but when set together, they are clearly transformed into words, words that fall in waves down the page. Successfully balancing readability with intriguing decorative forms, Blue Island is especially effective for titling. As for its romantic name, Blue Island is the title of a poem, also by Tankard, which also evokes notions of freedom, escape, intrigue, and the undulating beauty of the sea.
Menu Names And Style Linking
The fonts in this family have no style links: none are a bold or italic variant of another.
You should note that selecting a style option such as bold or italic with any of these faces will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
