Virginia Plain typeface.

This came about around designing logos and packaging for clients.
I wanted something feminine and modular, a typeface where letterforms interacted with each other but didn’t touch too much, keeping their readability.

As for influences, there’s the First Roxy Music album (which didn’t have the single ‘Virginia Plain’ on it originally), Rio 6 cigar packets, Herbert Bayer as a lady, Herb Lubalin & Avant Garde magazine, the flight of bees, vinyl record grooves, Veronica Lakes hair, Marine Ices, Max & Sally kids stories and Mr Freedom.

I’m thinking about capital letters…
