As Types Grow Older – Re-Release of Grimoire and Sadness

Forums: 

My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

Hebrew Typography Status Report 2012


I haven't been here for a long time, but i was busy doing interesting stuff.
Lately i have been working on a new blog (in Hebrew) called "The Hebrew Type Ministry" (name inspired by the "Ministry of Type" blog), which is a common online knowledge base about Hebrew Typography.

In the last month or so, i have been working alongside Israeli type designers in order to create the bilingual "Hebrew Typography Status Report 2012" , which includes many type samples and catalogs of typefaces designed in Israel between 2012 to 2013. The document is freely available for download.

Type Foundry Summer Internship Opportunities?

Hello Everybody, I was hoping to get some help and maybe get pointed in some good directions as I start applying for internships for the summer. I'm currently a Junior at Iowa State University for Graphic Design and I've spent a large amount of my time researching and applying for internships at a variety of firms. However, considering my passion for typography and my interest in type design I'm keeping an eye out for any internship openings at type foundries in the US. I know some of the larger ones and have either made contact with (or am in the process of contacting): Hoefler & Frere-Jones, House Industries, Emigre, T.26, and The Chank Company.
