8 Faces

The good news is that Elliot Jay Stocks has published 8 Faces, a print title for typography enthusiasts. The other good news is that its limited run of 1,000 copies sold out in just a few hours.

New FontFont webfonts

I was thinking, if only Scala & Scala Sans were released as web fonts. Well, now they’re here, and accompanied by some 300 others from the FontFont library.

Biome — the making of a typeface

biomesampleheaderOUT

A biome in nature is essentially an ecosystem. It’s also the name for my new typeface family. And now that the 14-weight Biome™ Wide family is complete, I’m able to look back on the process.
