Typeology, the new web-based typography magazine, is the kind of thing that simultaneously makes us l
ove the internet more than ever while also making us tremendously happy that Jewelboxing is being put to such terrific use. The magazine itself is fantastic, filled to the brim with interesting new fonts submitted by all kinds of type foundries and typophiles alike, fantastic design work showing the fonts in action, and in-depth interviews with each of their creators. What’s more, the whole thing is free downloadable PDF. And if you like what you’ve seen on the electronic pages therein and want to start using some of the typefaces you’ve fallen madly in love with, that’s where Jewelboxing comes in. For a very reasonable fee, the magazine sells a disc-based copy of itself, beautifully packaged using our King cases, which also includes every single font they discuss. It’s a brilliant system, we’re thrilled to see the System being put to such great use, and we wish Typeology the best of luck with all their future issues. So far, they’re off to a terrific start.
In our spare time, we are creating typefaces based on the strong emotions we feel for the people in Sao Paulo, Grand Rapids, Montreal, Ann Arbor, Columbus, Helena, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Staten Island, Pasadena, Kansas City, Buford, Greenville, Boca Raton, San Carlos, Wauwatosa, Glen Allen, Hadley, San Diego, Elmont, Richmond, Brooklyn, Redmond, Pittsburgh, Greenwich, El Segundo, Northbrook, Piedmont, and Minneapolis.
