Wool → Cotton
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.
LXII about to Drop
Our latest typeface is about to drop through Metis-Foundry. All we can say at this point is that this little typeface will have 10 different weights or one variable weight allowing for ultra fun.
Its Nice That Feat. Metis Foundry
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.
AIGA Feat. TEXEL
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!
