1. War Is Hevetica is a short animated film about two typefaces (Arial and Helvetica) that come alive late one night in a typography studio, print weapons for themselves, and go to war. Inspired by the infamous — and very real — dispute between typography fans about which font is better, the end result will be something crazy, unexpected, and “really fun for everyone.” It will also be our Project of the Day. Naturally!

  2. "Earlier this year, while exploring the dusty shelves at my favorite used bookstore hidden in the backwoods of upstate New York, I came across this book/folder on the work of the artist Degas from the 1940s or 50s. I loved everything about it but the hand lettered typography on the title was so beautiful, and I had never seen this titling face before," begins the tale of Uchronia, a typeface being designed by Mark Ho-Kane. And although, true to our modern times, he plans to release it as a fully-formed digital font, his alphabet stays wholly true to the classic aesthetic of its source material. Beautiful! And, naturally, our Project of the Day.

  3. Many cities have visual aesthetics that suit them. You may not think Chattanooga, Tennessee would be one of them, but a team of enterprising civilians are setting out to change that with the Chatype project, which will establish a unique typeface that will represent the creative spirit of their city. We’re big fans of artistically expressing your hometown pride! So, for today, we happily call our Project of the Day slot Chatype’s new home.

  4. Originally conceived by the three-man design studio Aesthetic Apparatus for a gallery show, VALUCO is a font parodying that iconic OPEN sign we all love to see on our coffee shop door in the morning (or in the front window of the liquor store after last call, not judging). Except these signs say things like “Sorry, we’re DRUNK” and “Yes, we’re BROKE”  — ha! Now, after a tidal wave of enthusiastic feedback, it’s time for this bold, beveled typeface to be brought to the masses. Type nerds rejoice!
