Find New Fonts with Fontspiration: Typography to Inspire You
The late Adrian Fruitger said,
Typography must be as beautiful as a forest, not like the concrete jungle of the tenements. It gives distance between the trees, the room to breathe and allow for life.
We can visualize where Mr. Frutiger was coming from, especially having the Oregon wilderness in our mind’s eye to draw from. Wispy moss appears placed just so–draping off Doug Fir trees, like the visual perfection of typographic ligatures.
With mad respect for Mr. Frutiger’s contributions to the legibility of the world, we present our most recent set of Fontspiration to inspire your typography. These pieces feature type by DSType, Chank Fonts, Klim Type Foundry, Jukebox Type, Bitstream, and Atipo. Check ’em out:
Artist: Donald Ely
Inspiration: Turner and Parsons “Smile” lyrics that were inspired by the final scene of Modern Times (1936 comedy film written and directed by Charlie Chaplin)
