Based in Bangkok, Thailand, Chatnarong Jingsuphatada is an accomplished typographer who has an innate sense of design aesthetics and, specifically, the needs of graphic designers. Back in the days when he was working in the graphic design industry full-time, Chatnarong was known to create his own unique fonts whenever he found himself unable to find the perfect lettering for his projects. Most graphic designers have known this struggle more times than they can count, but for some, like Chatnarong, it can open doors to new careers in typography. He often found himself poring over design catalogs for inspiration and it’s certainly shaped his goals where type design is concerned; with every release, he is focused on providing letter sets that are visually intriguing, highly versatile, and meet the needs of contemporary design.
After becoming familiar with the type design process, he established Superstore Font Foundry as an outlet to share his work with the design world. His first release was Gusto, a friendly and distinctive sans serif with humanist tendencies. An extension of Chatnarong’s label is Typesketchbook, his portfolio at YouWorkForThem. Featuring more than two dozen type designs, it offers a selection of sans serifs, handcrafted scripts, and display fonts perfect for a variety of design projects.
One of Typesketchbook’s most recent releases is Noyh Geometric Slim, an exciting new silhouette of his a previous design, Noyh Geometric. Noyh Geometric Slim still carries the hallmark razor-edged corners of its predecessor, yet it does so with a taller and narrower posture. This updated, graceful architecture allows designers to maximize the impact of their messages when limited space is a particular concern.
Noyh Geometric Slim offers perfect legibility, even in small point, making it an excellent choice for labels, business cards, and mobile applications. Its neutral attitude is businesslike without being too corporate, finding itself quite at home in corporate communications, web content, editorials, advertising, product packaging, logo design, branding, publishing, and presentations.
Available in Thin, ExtraLight, SemiLight, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, Heavy, and Black with corresponding italics for each, Noyh Geometric Slim’s weights correlate with those of Noyh Geometric, allowing for design cohesion wherever both are used. Its multilingual support extends to Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Romanian, Pan African Latin, and Basic Greek for global accessibility.
Right now through September 30, 2017, Noyh Geometric Slim is on sale for 80% off of its regular price so it’s a fantastic time to add this one to your collection.
Typesketchbook currently offers 27 products, a brilliant portfolio of type designs that are worth checking out. You’ll want to keep an eye on this one because if there’s one thing we know about Chatnarong, it’s that he is always working on new projects, giving us a lot of great stuff to look forward to!
