Fontworks Newsletter | January 2003

The longest, darkest month is over and along with it, I expect, is your New Year commitment to drink/eat/smoke/spend less, quaff 10 litres of water a day, go organic, take up Tai-Chi and squeeze in that 2 mile jog before work which you've heard will make you more productive in your job.

- MANNA FROM MANCHESTER! TWO NEW FOUNDRIES SIGN UP
Fontworks have added two budding new type stars to the stable, both residents of Manchester. DARREN SCOTT (senior typo at McCann-Erickson M'chr) has releases for T-26 and FUSE to his credit and his Darren Scott Typographics vehicle provides him with the perfect platform to develop his passion for visible language.

PlayStation, Manga and motor racing are just some of the healthy interests behind the debut collection by Anthony Roberts, director of blossoming Manchester design agency, FATHOM. And the purpose? An attempt to discover where letterforms lose the will to live! Judge for yourself:
