ABOUT







The Ivy Foundry [Jan Maack]

Aarhus, Denmark-based designer (b. 1968) who has worked as an art director and graphic designer since 1990. He started making typefaces in 2006. Ten years later he established The Ivy Foundry and writes: The Ivy Foundry is committed to helping brands and corporations fine-tuning their visual voice. In 2018, The Ivy Foundry joined Type Network. At The Ivy Foundry, he published

  • Ivy Journal (2018). This transitional serif face is loosely based on both the seminal Roman inscriptional capitals and classic movable type in the style of Bembo, Baskerville, and Times New Roman.
  • Swing King (2017). Hand-crafted.
  • IvyStyle TW (2016). A friendly slab serif with ball terminals. Unlike the typewriter faces it takes its cues from, IvyStyle TW is a proportional design with a large number of weights.
  • IvyStyle Sans (2016). Type Network analyzes: IvyStyle Sans is the sans serif component, a Scandinavian design reminiscent of the classic American Gothics. With open apertures and clean lines, the slightly narrow neohumanist letterforms abandon geometric rigidity in favor of improved reading comfort.
  • Swing King (2018). Type Network writes that it is a casual sans serif created in collaboration with Danish illustrator Erik Sørensen. Throughout his decades-long career, Sørensen always had a hard time finding the right typographic voice to complement his drawings. He teamed up with Maack to produce a useful typeface that was neither cartoonish nor handwritten, but a joyful illustrated font imbued with the warmth and charm of his drawings.
  • Ivy Mode (2018). A fashion mag sans family.

Creator of these typefaces at FontFont / FontShop:

    FF Speak (2007). A 17-style rounded geometric sans family which includes a hairline weight, Speak-Light. A relative of Eurostile.
  • FF Cube (2008). A large geometric sans with the industrial design feel of Eurostile and a large x-height.
  • FF Marselis (2012). A sans serif family. He also designed FF Marselis Serif (2016) and FF Marselis Slab (2013). FF Marselis was chosen in 2016 for large letteing at Brussels Airport in 2016.
