ABOUT







Lettergraphics [Marc Jones Barry Kimbrough]

Photolettering foundry run by Marc Jones Barry Kimbrough in Culver City, CA. Russell Bean worked for the Los Angeles studio of Lettergraphics International in charge of lettering, logo design and converting type designs to film fonts. It was at this time (1973) that the Washington family (digital version at Type Associates, Russell Bean's present company) was completed. The company ceased operations in the mid-1980s. Digital revivals:

  • The psychedelic (art nouveau inspired) typeface called Cantini (1972) was digitally revived and expanded by Patrick Griffin as Salome (2007, Canada Type).
  • Intrigue is a Lettergraphics film typeface that was digitized, revived and expanded to a large octagonal / mechanical typeface family, Contraption, by Phil Bracco (Pink Broccoli).
  • Scrwby (2013, Phil Bracco) is a revival of Surf.
  • Virginia (2008, Russell Bean) is a digitization of an old typeface by Bean himself from ca. 1970 that won a Lettergraphics typeface competition.
  • Rebecca Alaccari (Canada Type) designed Goudy Two Shoes in 2006, an expansion of the film typeface Goudy Fancy by Lettergraphics.
  • Good Grief PB (2015, Phil Bracco) started out as a revival of Carmel (or Karmel).
  • MardiKrewePB (2015, Phil Bracco) started as a digitization of a (psychedelic) film typeface called MardiGras by Lettergraphics.
  • Gene Eidy's Sukiyaki (1968, Lettergraphics) was eventually digitized (without permission) by Jonathan Smith as Hirosh (1993).
