YWFT New Faces

Though I would hit up Typophile and let you all see what we have been up to.

We have been taking interns in on a semi-regular basis now and one of the first things I try and teach them is how to make a handwritten typeface based on their writing style. It seems like a natural way to get someone into the craft. They start to notice why things like consistency plays a big part in making a font, etc.

Dapper is one of those experiments by Peter Bekke. A very simple but well-drawn alphabet.

Memoriam is a typeface commissioned by the New York Times magazine. It is a headline script and is a solid font through and through.

Inmate is a casual stencil font with the essence of Eurostile black. It comes with 2 styles. Inmate One is a more traditional style stencil, but Inmate Two is the look of future of space military styling.

Michel is an experimental handset font designed by the random, untamed flow of ink carried by water across paper. The letters become removed from their traditional appearance and take on a surrealistic nature that makes each one its own unique form.

Mousse Script is based on Glenmoy, a 1932 Stephenson Blake typeface. Improved and brought back by the amazing Alejandro Paul.

Player is the official typeface of sports. You can't watch a sporting event without seeing this typeface being used in some way. Essential.

Thanks for your time and let us know if you have any suggestions or feedback!

Hey Michael - Whoops! Please do some searching before naming your typefaces.

Peter named it as it is his face, but will change the name. Thank you for the heads up!
