Vegas font details emerge

Yorklyn, DE. - 30 April 2001


House Industries has provided more details concerning their recently released Las Vegas fonts.


House Industries pays homage to the illuminating ingenuity of the golden era of Las Vegas signage with the release of the House Las Vegas font collection.

Long before today's prosaic pylons swallowed the Strip, Las Vegas offered some of the finest examples of mid-century lettering ever created. These legendary edifices of cement, stone, steel and neon were enchanting landmarks of unprecedented inventiveness.

One would be hard pressed to suggest a place more exciting than vintage Las Vegas to serve as inspiration for House Industries' newest family of display fonts. Based on the legacy of the Las Vegas sign makers, this spectacular set revives an insight and imagination not seen since that irrecoverable era of commercial design.

In the House Industries grand tradition of coupling sounds from today's most colorful entertainers with today's most exciting typography, the House Las Vegas multi-session CD-ROM includes six original tracks composed, performed and recorded by Sin City enthusiast Brother Cleve and his Lush Orchestra.

The House Las Vegas font collection, including four fonts, a score of lively clip-art illustrations and four patterns, is a sure bet for any high stakes design project. House Las Vegas is available for immediate download at for $125.

House Industries is a Delaware-based independent type foundry and design studio that markets original and unique fonts to the design community worldwide. House Industries can be reached at 800.888.4390, 302.234.2356 or on the web,
