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.

[[http://www.youworkforthem.com/product.php?sku=T0276|Dapper]] is one of those experiments by Peter Bekke. A very simple but well-drawn alphabet.

[[http://www.youworkforthem.com/product.php?sku=T0275|Memoriam]] is a typeface commissioned by the New York Times magazine. It is a headline script and is a solid font through and through.

[[http://www.youworkforthem.com/product.php?sku=T0274|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.

[[http://www.youworkforthem.com/product.php?sku=T0273|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.

[[http://www.youworkforthem.com/product.php?sku=T0271|Mousse Script]] is based on Glenmoy, a 1932 Stephenson Blake typeface. Improved and brought back by the amazing Alejandro Paul.

[[http://www.youworkforthem.com/product.php?sku=T0270|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!
