Does anyone know of a good alternative typeface to replace United on the web? I can't find anything that will work.
I am selling my House Industries 10 year book, it is in perfect condition, it has never been opened and is still in its plastic wrap and comes with all the original font CDs. (I was accidently send two copies when I ordered it and it is now too late to get a refund!) Contact me at email@example.com if you are interested.
Selling my House Industries 10 Year anniversary book. The book is in excellent, like-new condition, although my name is written in the front. Original sleeve included. More information about the book is here:
Also included is a large stack of House catalogs, from the very early days to now (a random, incomplete collection, all in good to great condition).
The book is currently out-of-print. Please make a reasonable offer for the book and catalogs. I'm assuming shipping will be $15 to $20 for Priority in the U.S.
I'm looking for any information about Tal Leming, House Industries, and specifically the United type family. I've contacted both Tal and House, and am waiting for replies. I've also combed through both of their websites, attended a lecture by House, and have dug around the internet a bit. However, there aren't a ton of people who have written on Tal or House in the past, so finding a lot of information hasn't been that easy.
I'm working on a final project for my typography class and we are to choose a type face and its designer, present a presentation and essay on the two, create a poster advertising the presentation, and a catalog pamphlet with information about the two. I've selected United which of course means T. Leming and House Industries.
Just came across a new interview with Andy Cruz at House Industries and thought I'd share in case anybody missed it.
From the article:
"Type runs parallel with fashion... Just like any other genre, you've got your taste makers that can take anything and position it in the right place and all the sheep will follow. That happens with type. The joke around here is ‘ok, we like it,' that means once we put it out there, it won't be as popular as we think it will be, because we're really into it."
I claim to have a world record in type design in speed.
When House Industries guys went about their Font Sprint in Vancouver, I promised I would trump their attempt of producing a working font in under 4 hours. They failed miserabily; they had upper and lower case letters, and most of the numerals.
I promised that if ATypI ever came to Helsinki, I would make a whole font in that time.
ATypI did come to Helsinki, so I had to put my money where my mouth was, and since I was one of the organizers, I could. This is the result:
