Q is for Quixley


Quixley was designed by Vince Whitlock in 1991. There doesn’t appear to be much readily available information about either the designer or the typeface, but I found it interesting to read that Whitlock was inspired by an old Zoltan Nagy typeface, although which one in particular was not mentioned. Nagy, a Hungarian type designer, wrote ‘Techniques of Type Design’, produced engravings for postage stamps, and designed Antikva Margaret, his most notable typeface, which won a third place award at an ITC-sponsored competition in 1966. Whitlock had a hand in the design of several other typefaces, including Academy Engraved, Crillee, Lexikos and Equinox.
