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. Digital revivals:

  • The psychedelic (art nouveau inspired) face called Cantini (1972) was digitally revived and expanded by Patrick Griffin as Salome (2007, Canada Type).
  • Intrigue is a Lettergraphics film face 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 face Goudy Fancy by Lettergraphics.
