ABOUT







Typographic Collaboration (or: Typophile.com) [Jared Benson]

Executive Creative Director and Punchcut Founder. Typophile.com is run by Jared Benson, who is Jonathan Hoefler's webmaster since 1999, from San Francisco. Incredible web pages! Jared designed Review Beta, Yakuza (Japanese letters), Benson Caps (pixel font), Benson Linear (pixel font), Pixeltrap (2003), Bitmuni (2003, based on San Francisco MUNI train windows: a fantastic creation!), Trinary (2003, a crazy bar-coding typeface invention), Benson Nonlinear (another font for small point sizes), Freiburger (2003, based on a scan from from D.B. Updike's Printing Types, Vol 1, pg. 87. This was the type used for the first Bible printed in France: Freiburger, Gering and Kranz, Paris 1476) and Academic. At FontStruct, he created the Singularity family in 2009. Typophile.com is a general information site on type with essays, discussions, tutorials, examples, beautifully organized. On April 8, 2002, Jared spilled hs coffee on one of the most interesting places in the type world with this message: While we encourage healthy debate and meaningful discussion, posts containing inflammatory remarks and/or personal attacks will be deleted in their entirety by the board moderator.
