You may not have heard of Jonathan Hoefler or Tobias Frere-Jones but you’ve seen their work. Before their recent split they ran the most successful and well respected type design studio in the world, creating fonts used by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to the President of the United States.
Font Men, gives a peek behind the curtain into the world of Jonathan and Tobias. Tracking the history of their personal trajectories, sharing the forces that brought them together and giving an exclusive look at the successful empire they built together.

A-u-t-o-t-y-p-o-g-r-a-p-h-y is an amazing & ambitious exploration into typography from Darius Ou Dahao, a graphic designer from Singapore.
Autotypography ( A / T ) is a long-term project self-initiated by Darius Ou on the 16th of June 2012
A graphic poster is created everyday, serving as recounts of his daily life as a designer, using typographic & illustrative methods. This project also serves as a platform for practice in typography and experimental treatments, as well as discipline and commitment to graphic design.
I would love to showcase 100’s of Darius pieces here but I’ll let you lose hours in the wonderful collection of typograhic works thus far
Last month the very talented bunch at Typotheque released Supernova, a new script like typeface in a range of cuts and weights.
