London type foundry Fontsmith has launched a print magazine dedicated to lettering and type design. Issue one of TypeNotes includes a look at great type for TV and film, choosing the right typeface for an ad campaign and the challenges of creating Cyrillic fonts.
The magazine was launched to mark Fontsmith’s 20th birthday. Founder Jason Smith says it celebrates the foundry’s love of type and the craft behind it. “TypeNotes is a collection of ideas about type and design that we hope will be something to keep and collect…. My ambition is to share our little world of craft – what we do and what makes us think,” he says.
Issue one is priced at £10 and each copy comes with a free poster of typographic terms designed by Exeter studio Believe.
