In collaboration with Steven Bramble
Published 2 May 2018
Local artist Steven Bramble came up with the idea for a Heavitree Stone alphabet and developed the art work. I arranged for it to be digitised. Then once we had electronic images of the letters, I used the free online Calligraphr tool to transform them into a font. I also added a limited amount of basic punctuation.
The font has so far been used on the Heavitree Quarry Trails website, the Q is for Quarries online trail around an A-Z of Heavitree Stone sites in Exeter, and three physical leaflets about Heavitree Stone in three particular areas of Exeter.
You are welcome to download the font for your own use too. You will need one of the following files. There is a guide to the format you need and how to install fonts on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux at dafont.com/faq.php.
