      Bely from Roxane Gataud released at Type Together

      Letters and Numbers: A Watch’s Typeface

      “Study the face of a watch and you’re likely to notice something other than the time: The typography used to design the logo, numerals and words, which subtly communicates critical information about the timepiece, from the era in which it was produced to the values of its maker.”

      A Fontstruct competition leading to Valentine’s Day

      “We’d like you to design a FontStruction on the theme of “Love”. You can interpret the theme as broadly as you’d like, as long as you can somehow relate it to the word “Love”. You can be literal, but don’t need to be. Keep it decent though please!”

      Wired asks 15 type professionals about their favourite letterforms

      “THE MOST BANAL QUESTION asked of artists after What is your favorite color? is What pencil/pen/brush do you use? I expected type designers to be equally bored by inquiries into their favorite letterforms.
