This package includes the Fill, Outline, and Shadow versions of Discourse Middle Light (3 fonts total).
Although it references classic reverse-contrast wood type associated with the era of the Wild West, Discourse Middle Light Shadow by Dave Bailey is the opposite extreme of the Middle Heavy Shadow, a reinterpretation of conventional forms, more unique and distinctly neo-modern. This drives Discourse into new territory by stripping away historical context, adding versatility, and staking a rowdy new claim in contemporary design. Layering the Shadow, Outline, and Fill versions provides a fun chromatic effect.
Discourse is best used at large sizes. It looks great on packaging, in headlines, and for assembling colorful logotypes. Individual glyphs are powerful as isolated design elements like drop caps or icons.
