The E. Plomer building was built in 1864 by Edward Plomer. Originally, it sold Tobbaco and pharmaceutical drugs. In 1962 it was bought by Haji Sheikh Allah Dita who expanded the business by setting up Ethical laboratories, specializing in ophthalmic solutions. After 54 years, the business houses chemists, pharmaceuticals, opticians, and surgical instruments. I intend on designing a Deco Sans Serif typeface that reflects the architecture of the E. Plomer building and developing 3 weights to communicate the evolution of the business over the years.
