Glyphobet (was: mattt's fonts) [Matt Chisholm]

A type designer from Santa Cruz, CA (and now Oakland, CA), Matt Chisholm (Glyphobet; was: mattt's fonts) created mainly handwriting and display fonts. He obtained a BA in Mathematics from UC Santa Cruz. All his fonts were initially free---these included MRPHONE1, MRPHONE2, MRPHONE3, MRPHONE4, MRPHONEAlternates, CheckerHat, EverydayFont (Roland Berger, 1994), Flow (1994, with Roland Berger), JRandomC, KozmicJaggedHands, LEADvilleASTROnautInline, LEADvilleASTROnautSystem (retro futuristic), LettersLaughingDissectionandDestruction, LettersLaughingattheirExecution, LettersLaughingbyQuantizedandCalibrated, Matttschain, Matttsrope, Matttsstring, Matttsthread, Matttswire, OvialCaps (Rutherford Gong, 1996; scanned by Matt Chisholm), Ovial, Pixel, PsychoticElephantHeadline, PsychoticElephantText, RubbingFont (1995, with Susan Wilson, 1995), Shark (a powerful and original roman/blackletter hybrid revised in 2007), SirFigGothick, SwissCheesed, ToBeContinued (Alex Chisholm, 1996), Underlapped, DisorganizedCockroach, Ripple, SerpentKnotform.

Check out his Alphabet Soup Project, which randomly mixes glyphs from several languages. Ljubljana in particular (2007), with its Greek, Cyrillic and Latin glyphs, is stunning.

In 2010, he set up shop at MyFonts as Glyphobet. His fonts there include the bewitched Zenith (2010), Ljubljana (2010), Haylurker (2010), and the experimental Breuckelen (2010). Anadolu (2010) was inspired by the distinct style of sign lettering in rural Turkey.
