Yellow Design Studio based in Madison, Wisconsin features type design by Ryan Martinson and fine art by Rena Martinson.
Veneer from Yellow Design Studio is a high resolution hand-crafted letterpress font that’s vintage and authentic with a touch of grunge. It’s highly customizable with six distress options for every letter and three for all other characters, and because it’s remarkably detailed, it looks great even at very large sizes. In addition it includes a matching set of funky extras…for free! The Veneer family includes Veneer, Veneer Two, and Veneer Three with Veneer containing the least distressed characters and Veneer Three the most. Mix and match as desired to create realistic letterpress type. TIP: In Photoshop Veneer may look best with anti-aliasing set to “smooth”. Because of Veneer’s high level of detail, it may process more slowly in some applications.
The Magesta Script family by Yellow Design Studio is a set of four retro script fonts that capture the warm, authentic qualities of letterpress printing. Light, Regular, and Bold weights were created using different levels of ink coverage, while Mix is a combination of all three. The texture and slight misalignment add to its realism and vintage charm.
Melany Lane from Yellow Design Studio is a flourishy script based on traditional letterforms, but with the added quirks and warmth of hand-drawn type. The base character set has traditionally connected letters and an expressive charm. Contextual alternates add flair with unconnected letters and additional contour options. Mix in swash and stylistic alternates for extra funkiness and fun.
Anodyne is a warm and weathered all-caps font from Yellow Design Studio with hand-printed texture and unique shadow options. Features include four distress variations for each letter and at least two for every other character. Double-letter ligatures add realism by eliminating identical texture in adjacent characters. Layering regular and shadow versions allows independent control of the shadow color. Switch between lower-case and capital letters to change texture, or use opentype contextual alternates for additional, extra-distressed variations. Anodyne has an extended character set for multiple language support.
Thirsty Script from Yellow Design Studio is a contemporary script conceived as a marriage of elements from vintage signage scripts, Wisdom Script, Deftone Stylus, and Lobster. The result is a typeface with a ‘new meets vintage’ vibe. It’s friendly with an edge…a mixture of retro script, modern sans serif, and a shot of caffeine. Features include six weights from Light to Black, shadow layers, old-style figures, contextual alternates (for a slightly more traditional feel), multiple language support, and a handy selection of ligatures and stylistic alternates.
Thirsty Script Rough from Yellow Design Studio is the warm and weathered version of Thirsty Script with texture that captures the authentic qualities of letterpress printing. It’s highly customizable with four alternate versions of every weight ranging from very light to heavy distress. Because it’s remarkably detailed, it looks great even at large sizes. For extra customization and fun, it includes an set of matching texture pieces…for free!
Verb from Yellow Design Studio is an 18-font sans-serif family that’s friendly and approachable, but trades huggable roundness for confidence and energy.

It’s packed with features including true italics, small caps, ligatures, oldstyle and tabular numerals, extensive language support, and more.
