An Array of Possibilities

Designed by Jackkrit Anantakul, an YouWorkForThem Exclusive.

This new typeface is going to blow your mind! Heres what they say...

YWFT Array is a beautifully-drawn icon font of stylish geometric illustrations, with an eclectic, art deco vibe. With its bisected circles and the bold, linear symmetry of its triangular border corners, YWFT Array is invaluable when creating a type specimen border, or posters and ads that seek to capitalize on a historical style. Just start typing, and YWFT Array’s elegance and glamor will do all the pattern work for you automatically, with a smooth modernity that is almost magical. William Van Alen would be proud.

The patterns that you can cretate from this typeface are incredible - there are so many options, this will be a fun one to play with!

Project Love: Sentimental Journey

Absolutely amazing collaborative project by an great group of New Zealanders - Sentimental Journey. Poet Kate Camp chose 20 phrases of 2 words, sending half to typographer Kris Sowersby, and the other half to illustrator Sarah Maxey. The two artists worked separately on their words, only revealing them to each other at the end. The final outcome is a book of gorgeous illustrated type, available for purchase at Village.

This is an amazing project, great to see some amazing Kiwi's getting together making lovely things!

Some really gorgeous print, poster and identity work by Cody Haltom. Loving the simplicity of the Public School identity, and the pencil and heart posters would look amazing on my wall!

Typeface Love: Sevigne

LOVE this typeface by You Work For Them. This is what they say about the gorgeous Sevigne...
Sevigne [sey-vee-nyey] is a highly refined, contemporary geometric sans, inspired by the ambience of high-end fashion and luxury. The inclusion of over 130 unique ligatures expand it's sensibility of alluring, well-balanced letterforms and distinctive style. Stylistically, as an all-caps typeface, Sevigne exudes a greater sense of harmony and polish due to it's unicase form where the interplay of a limited amount of characters is the focus. Subtle, considered details are found within individual letters, contrasted by the complex, intersecting forms that make up the various ligatures.
I love the thin, geometric sense to the typeface, and could definitely see myself using it as a display face or for branding exercises!
