Set the wayback machine for January, 2010: Network Osaka sends us their beautiful new serif, titled Haute. Immediately, it starts on a rapid climb toward becoming one of the year’s biggest sellers, and becomes a top-notch addition to the YouWorkForThem Exclusive Font Library. Now, fast-forward to present day, where we are proud to present the second exclusive release from Network Osaka, Burocrata. During the design and development of Burocrata, we worked closely with Network Osaka to make sure the finest details were reviewed, cleaned up and even polished with a chamois made of thousand-year-old yak fur. Network Osaka carried on improving more and more of the fine details with lasers and breakfast cereals late into the night, until finally, this amazing new sans serif emerged like a butterfly made of satin, covered in ice cream.
In addition to the release you can also Download PDF to see examples and specimen charts. (Sorry, no ice cream left.)
We came across The Typography Manual in the Apple Appstore just a week or so ago when searching for type related apps and almost snagged it. We have not purchased it yet, but it looks to be a nice one for all your type heads out there. (Via Müller-Brockmann)
As Yves Saint Laurent said, “fashions fade, style is eternal.” And there ain’t no style like Underware style. For more than a decade these pan-Euro design virtuosos have been mastering scripts and opentype technology, and it is our great privilege to have them joining our library. They drop hugely versatile fonts, rock type workshops, run the Typeradio superstation, leap tall serifs in a single bound, and they do it all with the smooth style that can only come from the Netherlands.
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.
Our friends over at Need Supply Co have been making great use of Press Gothic recently, the excellent and affordable ($19.95) sans-serif from Canada Type. The images above show that even though this font has a conservative, bold and authoritative presence, it can also be used in more gentile genres like fashion.
Some very interesting type compositions/designs going on over at Neue Magazine. The recent project is about Barcelona, which also features a design by our very own Jackkrit Anantakul and his handset design Gavin.
The French graphic designers MM/Paris have just published this release about a beautiful hand-set ,alphabet design they designed for the luxury fashion brand Prada. You can find more details at the MM/Paris website and also in this PDF they released.
For the past five weeks, our in-house designer Jackkrit Anantakul has been sketching, scanning and designing his latest font (handset) design, entitled Gavin. When all was said and done, the concept sketches had over 1100 letter designs, from which we narrowed down two versions, Gavin and Gavin Alt. Each of these two styles contains over 400 diverse, hand-drawn letters. To celebrate Gavin’s release we created a promotional pdf to showcase possible designs using Gavin. Gavin is extremely fun to design with, and we hope you enjoy reading this complimentary pdf as much as we enjoyed designing it.
