ABOUT







House Industries [Andy Cruz]

Foundry located in Yorkly, DE. House Industries is run by Rich Roat and Andy Cruz with designer Ken Barber as Typography Director. Originally founded in 1993 by principals Andy Cruz and Rich Roat, House Industries has grown into a studio which sells unique display typography, illustration and design services, and, most recently, clothing and accessories. Fonts sell for 50 USD per face, and about 175 USD for ten. Many of the typefaces are grungy or special effect fonts, and all font names have the word "house" in them, as in the graffiti font Phathouse. Custom font service available. Alternate URL. Free fonts: United Stencil, House Slant, SpaceAgeRound.

Type designers: Andy Cruz (Warehouse, Roughouse), Allen Mercer, Ken Barber, Jeremy Dean, Kristen Faulkner, Nicole Michels, David Coulson, Tal Leming, Ben Kiel.

The early typefaces by House include United Sans (octagonal and stencil), Neutra (2002, a 30-weight stylish architectural sans family named after architect Richard Neutra), Global Font (renamed to Bullet), the Chalet Milan, Cologne, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Paris, New York, London and Tokyo font families (in versions called 60s, 70s and 80s), Chalet Silhouettes, the Simian font collection (2001: OrangUtan, Chimpanzee, Gorilla, Sacred Scroll).

In 2003, they released the Shag Collection, which includes Shagbats, Exotica, Mystery and Lounge. Andy Cruz designed Roughouse (1993) and Printhouse (1994), and co-designed Spookhouse and HauntedHouse in 1996 with David Coulson. House published House (2004, Gestalten Verlag), a 240-page specimen book. Also in 2004, they released five typefaces based on the lettering of Ed Benguiat: Ed Interlock (1400 ligatures), Ed Roman (animated bounce), Ed Script, Ed Gothic andi Bengbats.

In 2005, they started digitizing the PhotoLettering collection, which they had acquired in 2003. This was done in partnership with Christian Schwartz and Erik van Blokland. They published Holiday Gothic, Holiday Sans and Holiday Script in the same year.

In 2006, the 105-font family United was published. The six-weight Luxury family, also done in 2006, contains three serif text weights called Luxury Text, as well as three display typefaces, called Platinum (art deco), Gold, and Diamond (all caps with triangular serifs). They were designed by Christian Schwartz and Dino Sanchez.

In 2007, we welcome Burbank, a large casual and quirky sans family, and Blaktur, a blackletter typeface which an award for display typeface at TDC2 2008. The lively signpainting typefaces Studio Lettering Sable, Studio Lettering Slant and Studio Lettering Swing also won awards in that competition. Show and Tell is their blog.

In 2009, the low-to-zero contrast Alexander Girard family was published. It consists of Girard Sky, Girard Script, Girard Display, Girard Sansusie and Girard Slab in many weights and styles. It was created by Laura Meseguer based on the lettering used to announce the textile designs that Alexander Girard did for Herman Miller in 1955.

Additions in 2010 include Eames Century Modern (+Poster Numerals, Cover Numerals, Thin, Ornaments, Stencil, +Black Stencil), a 26-style family of medium-to-low contrast modern typefaces in the Clarendon mode that feature nifty tricks on the ligature side---jointly developed by Erik van Blokland and House Industries type designers Andy Cruz and Ken Barber. Blacktur is a blackletter family.

In 2012, House Industries was busy digitizing typefaces from the Photo-Lettering collection. Some of the typefaces in that collection have the prefix Plinc or PLINC in the name. This included typefaces such as Worthe Numerals (fat didone numbers) and Norton Tape (by Kimberly Winder; based on the stencil paperfold typeface Norton Tape by S.E. Norton).

Among typefaces added in 2013 and 2014, we note Velo Serif designed by House Industries, Christian Schwartz, Mitja Miklavcic and Ben Kiel. At MyFonts: Velo Serif Text and Velo Serif Display.

In 2016, they published Municipal Cast. Municipal (a font family inspired by the beefy iron letterforms on manhole covers; by Ken Barber, Quentin Schmerber of Production Type, Teja Smrekar, and Ben Kiel), which was released in 2020.

In 2021, House Industries started selling its fonts through MyFonts.
