I’m a former employee and the redesign is older than that, although I can’t remember exactly when or who did it. The website seems to have been redesigned in about spring 2008 and the current branding page dates to summer 2007 according to the Wayback Machine, which sounds about right to me although I can’t seem to find a press release announcing it.
Foundry Sterling looks lovely; it’s a shame the budget didn’t stretch to a web licence…
Thanks, Blythwood. I’ve updated the estimated date. This led me to reexamine Foundry Sterling’s release date which appears to be 2004, not ’09 as we (and other sources) indicate.
It was announced as early as 2002. (So glad to have access to the Typophile archives again!)
Hm, I don’t see it, Stone. The proportions and serif structure are quite far off.
Jeremy Tankard’s speaking bio mentions having drawn a logotype for Oxford so it might be this one.
