YouWorkForThem cannot stress enough how psyched we are to have P22 onboard. These are old-school font masters who have been ruling artist-inspired digital fonts for almost 20 years, and they handle some of the world’s most renowned titles. Based on the sheer numbers these guys handle, you might think they’re some kind of massive superconglomcorp, but in reality they’re a small group of dedicated individuals who are very, very good at what at they do, and we are honored to have them.
Over the next few weeks (and months) we will be adding many font designs from the P22 library into our library. Keep your eyes peeled on our Newsletter, Facebook and Twitter for release notices and more.
P22 type foundry began making artist inspired digital fonts in 1994. After a successful beginning of designing packaged font sets that catered to museum gift shops and specialty stores, P22 expanded into mail order catalogs and direct marketing. Along with fonts, P22 also started making other merchandise. The focus remained on design and art history. To diversify the type of fonts offered, P22 branched out and started the International House of Fonts in 2001 as an online only type boutique that show cased designers from around the world. Another division, Sherwood Type, was created to highlight the many type designs of Ted Staunton. In 2004, P22 acquired the legendary Lanston Type Co. and in 2006 introduced the life-long collective works of Jim Rimmer via Rimmer Type Foundry. P22 type foundry has been active in the design and type communities and is a continuing supporter of organizations such as SoTA (Society of Typographic Aficionados), ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale), Type Directors Club & The Type Club of Toronto.
