Wool → Cotton

August 26, 2019

Earlier this month we said goodbye to our cosy little studio in the wool mills Kensington and hello to our new location in Footscray inside the old cotton mills.

We have only been here a few weeks and already it feels like home. Heres an excellent example of the local street signage that we are pretty into:

 

Our new location office location is 38/91 Moreland Street, Footscray Vic 3011 so you will need to update your roller file index cards accordingly.

Dot19

May 21, 2019

Dot nineteen was typeface designed and developed as part of #36daysoftype – A design challenge to create a new letter each day for 36 days.

The goal for our typeface was to create a typeface that pushed the boundaries of each letterform, to create something challenging in both creating and reading, something that was equally typography and illustration.

Have a read and test the typeface out at Metis Foundry

You can also buy Dot19 from Metis Foundry.

Alexandro Lives

April 9, 2019

Our latest typeface — Alexandro is now live and ready to live on your hard drive. 

Alexandro is a studio initiated illustrative display typeface. It is the direct response to the more serious projects that the studio has taken on recently. There was a yearning to create something bold, something expressive, something curious and something down right weird. Alexandro is exactly this – it treats each character as that, a character or a little being or monster.

 

Additionally, we have a special offer for the first 25 people to buy the bundled set of Alexandro (pictured above) will recieve a limited edition Alexandro poster/type specimen for free!

Alexandro is now available from Metis Digital Type Foundry
