Hull Noir


Playing our small part.

Davyart are proud to have played our small part in the promotion of the Hull Noir Crime Fiction Festival, part of the myriad of events organised for Hull City of Culture 2017.

We designed a range of promotional materials for Hull Noir, featuring the debut of a Davyart created custom typeface, which had been a work in progress, especially completed for the festival. This is ‘Silver Ribbon’, a typewriter font that captures the spirit of the genre.

With opentype features creating subtle glyph variations across blocks of text, Silver Ribbon strives to look like it was typed on a manual typewriter in a room hung heavy with cigarette smoke  and reeking of cheap bourbon. The very spirit of Noir.

Due to the cast of international authors appearing at Hull Noir, we also had to ensure that Silver Ribbon has extended latin language support. Silver Ribbon is used across branding from the Programme and event flyers to the Hull Daily Mail website 'Takeover'.

Silver Ribbon will be available commercially in late 2017. Please check back for updates and availabilty.
