Two bespoke headline fonts were created for In Loving Memory of Work. Liaison is inspired by the Liaison Committee for the Defence of the Trade Union placards distributed during the dispute. The font's distinct geometric forms embody the industrial nature and urgency of the dispute but the type's harsh nature is tempered with quirks like the crossbar in H. Ferrymoor draws inspiration from the Ferrymoor-Riddings colliery banner, which has distinct letterforms handcut and sewn into its fabric. Whilst, in today's context, the font appears to have a digital aesthetic and structure, the banner was created in the 1970s and has been on picket lines ever since. Both fonts were created in uppercase and small caps with hairline glyphs.
