Prince John held his high festival in the Castle of Ashby. This was not the same building of which the stately ruins still interest the traveller, and which was erected at a later period by the Lord Hastings, High Chamberlain of England, one of the first victims of the tyranny of Richard the Third, and yet better known as one of Shakspeare’s characters than by his historical fame. The castle and town of Ashby, at this time, belonged to Roger de Quincy.Prince John held his high festival in the Castle of Ashby.

About

Publico originated as one of many stops on the long road to The Guardian’s 2005 redesign and the Guardian family. However, it was finished for Mark Porter and Simon Esterson’s redesign of Público in Lisbon. Because it shares the skeletal form of the Guardian typeface, Publico is a perfect companion.

The collection contains four families: Publico Нeadline with the interplay between sharp serifs and soft ball terminals, Publico Text, where elegance gives way to sturdiness, Publico Banner, which was initially designed to meet the needs of Público magazine web-designers and Publico Text Mono drawn for Bloomberg Businessweek infographics.

Despite its long history, Publico still feels contemporary and appears not only in newspapers, but also in web-design and brand identity.

When Bloomberg Businessweek was starting work on their election issue in 2012, Richard Turley commissioned a monospaced version of their sans. Commercial Type had moved into an office in Chinatown in New York earlier that year; Christian Schwartz had noticed monospaced serif type on many signs in the neighborhood. Inspired by these forms, he offered to draw a monospaced version of Publico Text as well, enabling data to look like data in Businessweek’s serif typeface as well. Though it was not space-efficient enough for this special issue, it appeared in infographics and in feature headlines in many subsequent issues. Greg Gadzowicz added the italics, which are optically corrected obliques in 2014.

Following the redesign of The Guardian, the team headed by Mark Porter, including Barnes and Schwartz, was awarded the coveted Black Pencil by the D&AD. The team was also nominated for the Design Museum’s “Designer of the Year” prize. In September 2006, Barnes and Schwartz were named two of the 40 most influential designers under 40 in Wallpaper*.
