When choosing the FILB colour schema we wanted to choose colors that best represent our unique coastal area and the wider Lifeboat organisations of the UK. You will find this colour schema displayed throught this website and any of our promotional material going forward. Our aim is use these colours to inspire others to support and join us as we constanly adapt to the changes and challenges around us, with the core message that together we are stronger.
Mukta is a Unicode compliant, versatile, contemporary, humanist, mono-linear typeface family available in seven weights, supporting Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurumukhi, Tamil and Latin scripts. This type family is a libre licensed version of Ek's self-titled multi-script project, an ongoing effort to develop a unified type family for each Indian script. The goal is to build one harmonious family across all Indian scripts without letting the visual features of one script dominate over others. This ensures that the fonts can be used successfully for both single and multi-script purposes.
In a highly dynamic and ever changing volunteer based organisation there are not always the skills and experience required when designing a brand. This includes documenting what we do and how we do it. Such was the case with the historical use of fonts within the FILB, and we needed to find a font that best matched what we had been using in our publications to one that could easlity be documented and maintained into the future. This font maintained all the need angles on the letters and brought along some new ones and stylistic flexibility that was missing before.
