A Moon Shaped Font

K-Type Deansgate was chosen as the typeface for Radiohead’s 2016 album, A Moon Shaped Pool. The fonts can be seen in action on cd covers, vinyl sleeves, booklets, and publicity material.

The two Deansgate families, a normal width and a condensed, are based on mid-twentieth century lettering from Manchester street nameplates. A new Light weight was created specially for use by Radiohead designer Stanley Donwood, and light weights have since been added to both Deansgate families available from K-Type.
