Process Type Foundry [Eric Olson]

Located in Minneapolis and/or Golden Valley, MN, Process Type Foundry is Eric Olson's foundry created in 2002. Its team grew withe additions of Alice Savoie, Nicole Dotin and Doug WilsonIts fonts:

  • Anchor.
  • Bryant (2002, sans serif with simple forms). Bryant 2.0 (2005, Standard&Pro), Bryant Compressed, Bryant Condensed (all three form a neat geometric sans family), Bryant Pro.
  • Chrono (2012). Olson writes: Chrono: The nearly geometric sans serif. Chrono is a refined oval sans serif of 20th century origins and 21st century sensibilities. Influences ranging from the gruff Aurora Grotesk series to the elegant Neuzeit are paired with a subtle geometry and typographic utility to inform this family of sans serifs. Chrono was renamed Colfax later in 2012.
  • Colfax (2012). The blurb: Colfax is a refined oval sans serif of 20th century origins and 21st century sensibilities. Influences ranging from the gruff Aurora Grotesk series to the elegant Neuzeit are paired with a subtle geometry and typographic utility to inform this family of sans serifs. It was formerly called Chrono. A complaint from another foundry with a similarly named font led to the name change. The only one I can think of is Cronos (Robert Slimbach, Adobe).
  • Coordinates (2018). A monospaced almost typewriter typeface.
  • Elderkin (2005). Eric Olson; A few of my typefaces were made for very specific projects (Process Grotesque + Elderkin) and really have no contribution to make beyond that. Sure they look fine, but who cares? I'm not thrilled with them and plan on removing them this spring.
  • Entovo (2006, rectangular).
  • FIG-Sans, FIG-Script, FIG-Serif (2002, as in needlepoint lettering, in imitation of the figlet ascii-to-letter program).
  • FindReplace (2004).
  • A free monospaced font, Indivisible (2002). This became a variable font in 2019.
  • Kettler (2002). A Courier-like font named after Courier's designer, Howard Kettler.
  • Klavika (2004, an extensive sans family). Followed in 2005 by Klavika Condensed, in 2008 by Klavika Basic and in 2012 by Klavika Display. Klavika poster by Mary Stratton and Michele Wong Kung Fong.
  • Lingua (2003, an octagonal typeface with about 200 ligatures).
  • Locator (2003), Locator Display: an information design sans family.
  • Maple (2005, a grotesque family that includes a beautiful Black).
  • Moniker (2017, Process Type Foundry). A large rounded sans typeface family.
  • Process Grotesque (or: Process Grot).
  • Scandia Line (2015). Drawn without curves, this four style+stencil variant is purely polygonal, for a special Neanderthal computer effect. Scandia (2015) on the other hand is a classic geometric sans.
  • Seravek (2007, a linear and simple sans created for information design).
  • Stratum 1 and 2 (2004, contemporary geometric typefaces genetically linked to Bank Gothic).
Before Process Type Foundry, Eric used to run Information Repair, where he did "typeface design and print design for clients within the cultural sector including the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), Intermedia Arts and the Design Institute at the University of Minnesota" and made the fonts Novo Grotesk, Necrophones, Fibo001.
