Friends of Type – Amazing typographic design and lettering


As I am getting a lot of emails about which blogs I like most, I thought I should make you a ‘favorites list’. But as it is quite unspectecular to write down a few links of blogs, I will write you a short outline of all the amazing blogs and the outstanding people behind them. I will try to make a daily (or at least regularly) favorites’-post, until the list is full. So let’s start:

The first blog I will present to you is also one of the highest on my list: Friends of Type. Friends of Type is a 2009 founded and (nearly) daily updated blog, filled with incredibly amazing typographic design and lettering. All designs are drawn and/or digitized by the four contributers Aaron CarambulaErik MarinovichDennis PayongayongJason Wong. The great thing about Friends of Type isn’t only the (again) incredible design (I filled the whole wall behind my desk with their letterings, to get me in a happy and designy mood every day), but the content itself. The great mix of humor and personal stuff somehow lets you feel, like you are also part of the FoT-Team, even if you are nearly 6000 miles away. So I raise my glass to my good old (it’s been two years now) ‘Friends’ and their great collection of amazing typographic designs and letterings.

In their own words:
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.
