Design of Lawson Antique, an all-caps, display typeface inspired by the Lawson Milk Company, which was founded in 1939 by James Lawson in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and was defunct by 1985 (USA). In 1974, Consolidated Foods, which bought Lawson in 1959, signed an agreement to allow Daiei, Inc. to establish the Lawson (株式会社ローソン) convenient store franchise in Japan, which still operates today. Lawson Antique was created out of an interest in Post-World War II economic expansion, also known as the Golden Age of Capitalism, and its transformation of the environment. Lawson Antique has 96 glyphs with basic Latin characters, lining figures, punctuation, and symbols.
