Psy/Ops is Rodrigo Cavazos's foundry which initially consisted of artists and designers from the San Francisco Bay Area mainly interested in experimental type, type on the fringe.

  • In 2010, Cavazos did custom work via T-26. For example, three prominent lettering styles from the famous Jack Daniels Black Label (ca. 1904) were developed into complete fonts. Jasper is based on the familiar logo lettering (and bearing Jack Daniel's given first name). Lynchburg Script (2010) is based on the Tennessee lettering in the label. Finally, the solid mechanical typeface Motlow is named for Lem Motlow, the nephew of Jack Daniel who managed and later inherited the Distillery.
