If you’re a fan of typography and you’ve never stopped by the Friends of Type website then you are missing out! Friends of Type is a four person collaboration comprised of designers Aaron Carambula, Erik Marinovich, Dennis Payongayong, Jason Wong, and a featured designer of their choosing each month.
In their own words, here’s what you need to know about FOT:
Friends of Type features original typographic design and lettering – fresh visual content – practically every day, by the four primary contributors. Posts are meant to log ideas, express ourselves, and inspire each other and our readers. The last week of every month we feature a guest designer, someone we admire and think will elevate our work and the site through their contribution.
This is a sketchbook, an archive, a dialogue. The posts are sketches and ideas on visualized language; a collaborative habit born out of the realtime interactions that made us friends in the first place.
I’ve gone ahead and taken the liberty of rounding up a combination of recent updates and old favorites. I’d love to know what you think in the comments!
