Hothouse was designed in 2001 for The Glasgow School of Art and is still in use as their corporate typeface today. It is recognizably inspired by Charles R. Mackintosh’s (1868–1928) explorations in the field of letterforms, renown architect of The Glasgow school of Art.
Based on a square the (almost entirely) monospaced Hothouse corresponds to Mackintosh’s art nouveau architecture. For the Type Department release Hothouse was carefully expanded into a versatile font family with Regular, Medium and Bold weights and includes a widely extended character set. Interchangeable upper and lower case characters and a set of alternative glyphs and ligatures provide great variety to the appearance of your text.
