What is the Wakefield™ font?

A gentle breeze caressed his face as his body took on the easy posture of a dancer on break. Flickering sparklets of light sprinkled the glass-smooth surface of the aqua liquid on which he floated. His mind wandered; he was only days away from his scheduled departure date. This day was no different from a hundred other days he had spent melded to his windsurfer, skittering along the breadth of the modest lake, soaking up the sun’s rays and forgetting about the entire rest of the world.Lake Quannapowitt, and the town of Wakefield, Massachusetts, were familiar to Steve, a long-time resident of the picturesque New England town. This is where he grew up; this is where he married and lived for many years; and this is the place he was preparing to leave, not one week hence. Not generally prone to nostalgia, it was in just such a state he nonetheless found himself once Zephyrus retreated, as was his custom, periodically, while patrolling the resplendent lake. Steve was going to miss the lake, and he was going to miss the town. More…
How many hours of how many days had he spent exactly like this, standing on his motionless board, waiting for his sail to fill, and staring at the lake’s shores, its tiny beach, the town Common with its carefully maintained greenery, and equally well-tended gazebo, the Center church – its spire shadow piercing the water’s edge, like a scissor-cut the better to begin a full-fabric tear? Yes, he was going to miss this place – this town which all of a sudden had become a place out of time, just as he was about to become a person out of place. Once this idea struck him, he couldn’t shake it. He was transported back in time four score years, now watching his ancestors walk along the shore. Nothing in view belied this belief – not the church’s century old architecture, not the gazebo frozen in time, nor the timeless sands of the beach, nor the unchanging Common. Everything belonged exactly where it was, and where it always would be. This, he decided, was how he would remember his hometown.
And this is when it occurred to Steve to design a typeface that would evoke these images and musings – a typeface with an old-fashioned look, reflected in high crossbars, an x-height small in size relative to its uppercase, and an intangible quality reminiscent of small-town quaintness.
Wakefield, the typeface, was born on Lake Quannapowitt in the town for which it was named, shortly before Steve moved away. It is at once a tribute to his birthplace and a keepsake.
