The Box! New Foundry Release
The box is a new space where fonts, sometimes display, sometimes experimental, come to life. Through this new projet we try to reveal to the world the awesome work and sketches some designers tend to keep in their cupboards and aim to provide the most suitable and high quality font with those. We’ve been working on this project for the past year and are proud to announce that we’ll be able to provide you with new releases on a (kind of) monthly basis.
Of course, we’re always seeking for new projects new ideas, new people to meet!
For the past year we’ve worked with amazing designers, and we can’t wait to show you what they’ve been up to (even though we’ve already shown a bit… too impatient… ) from Antonio D'Elisiis’ darkest ever slab face, Duc Cao’s most insane outline expressive letterforms, Franziska Weitergruber’s killing the rhythmic in any of your words, Raphaël Lefeuvre wondering how everything could fit in on and only box, Helene Krieger’s exploration of historical handwritten letters for a contemporary use, Valerio Monopoli breaking the grounds between style and ductus, Nicolas Dupuis seeking for the darkest letter he can paint, draw, cut out.
Last but not least John David Maza will get the ball rolling with his type construction built through the awareness of Philippines’ beautiful, yet threatened, giant clam: Taklobo!
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg, so many more amazing projects are in the making but we can’t say too much for now
