Gridiron (2013-2014) is a custom typeface family commissioned by ESPN magazine for their 2013 College Football Preview issue. Three versions of the Gridiron typeface were developed for different applications: The lightest weight, Quarterback, is used for headlines. The two bolder weights are Fullback and the more intricately structured Touchdown. These three styles cover the entire spectrum from athletic lettering to labyrinthine extravaganza.

The hipster typeface Coleman Air (2015) is a special version of their Nomi typeface, created for Coleman's Japanese catalogue of outdoor gear.

In 2017, for SModa Magazine, they designed the summa cum laude partly curvy typeface Sølve.
