Dobson is a bold display typeface named after 19th-century English architect John Dobson. Designed for use at large scale and inspired by the architecture of Grainger Town (Newcastle Upon Tyne) which is dubbed Tyneside Classical.

It resonates the Doric Order which is one of the three orders of ancient Greek and later classical architecture, which feature heavily throughout Grainger Town. It aims to reflect the key characteristics of the order while giving an essence of some of the finest classical streets in Britain.
