Font Men is a short documentary, directed & produced by Dress Code, about Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, and their world of type. Obviously shot before their public break-up. Really nice motion graphics, too.
The folks at HypeForType approached graphic designer Ryan Atkinson to produce their first magazine, Typographic Revolt. The mag acts as a showcase for their typeface collection and is A2 sized with a twist. Instead of following the traditional convention, Ryan designed a quick read through A2 magazine which also doubles up as a set of 4 Exclusive Faces posters. Each page folds out to create a double sided poster perfect for your studio or home wall space. Typographic Revolt is printed as a limited litho run on 90gsm wood free paper, giving everything a premium newspaper feel which absorbs the inks to create a beautiful desaturated look and feel.
Typographic Revolt is available now through Amazon.
Art direction and designed by Stefania Malmsten and Ulrika Hellberg, Voice Over’s gorgeous cover is printed in silver foil and the entire magazine is set in Chronicle Text and Chronicle Display by Hoefler & Frere-Jones.
Overall this is stunning work, the interior layouts are to die for.
HypeForType has done a massive update with a ton of new typefaces. HypeForType is definitely becoming a great resource for well designed typefaces.
Well, it’s good to be back! I want to wish everyone a happy new year.
To start off the new year we have a sweet site by John at I Love Typography called Type Nuts that features type-themed & type-inspired iPhone & desktop wallpapers. Some really nice stuff on there including a new wallpaper I designed for the site.
I found this excellent font last night while surfing for old Swiss design books. Alte Haas Grotesk by Yann Le Coroller, is a free Grotesk/Helvetica look-a-like with a soft feel to the edges. The author describes it as a typeface that looks like it were printed in an old Brockmann book. It definitely has that feel to it. I’m looking forward to using this in a design.
