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.)
Burocrata is available only at YouWorkForThem.
Today we came across this amazing highlight reel of logo work, which has been posted into five different pages: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four & Part Five. Such a very nice roundup of imagery from Al Cooper’s book. (Via Aqua-Velvet)
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)
We came across a very nice Flickr group today, all dedicated to Polaroid Type 80 film. With loads of retro like imagery on here, it makes for a fun little area to browse.
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.
Mr Josh Boston just tipped us off to his most recent project, the Ford Fiesta San Diego Field Guide. The final project made great use of numerous YWFT fonts and handset designs, see if you can spot them all! Commissioned by Sezio & Holiday Matinee.
Stumbled across this portfolio today, which contains some interesting and well done illustration work by Gianmarco Magnani. There are also prints available for purchase on the site as well.
Frederico Antunes just wrote in to let us know he used WYLD as well for a skate magazine he designed recently. Very nice usage and you can grab the PDF to see more examples.
English design firm No Sugar just dropped us a line to let us know they used Suprb’s font Wyld (purchased at YWFT) for their recent Art Direction of XYZ Magazine. Great job, and keep up the great work!
