Game Lettering: Tale of Tales

Posted by Cha

[Spoiler warning for FATALE, although I'm not sure FATALE spoilers count, really.]

Indie developer Tale of Tales tend to polarise opinion, but I have a crush on their work. One of the things I appreciate is their use of lettering as an art form.

The logo for The Path was hand-crafted by Marian Bantjes. She's a famous typographer and graphic designer, the kind who wins awards and attracts labels like 'innovative'. It was a commission borne out of a desire to work with gifted artists, not expediency. A small thing in the scheme of game development, but rather beautiful.
