ABOUT







Thinkdust [Alex Haigh]

Graphic and identity design company founded by Alex Haigh in 2005 who was located in Sheffield, UK, but moved to Nottingham. Its web page is drowning in Flash---avoid the main page but go the blog or MyFonts instead. They are selling Taku (2009, bold squarish, with a stencil style added), Aiko (2008, a gorgeous fat techno family), Sukato (2008, another ultrafat beauty) and BAQ Rounded (2008, ultra-fat closed counter face; also at T-26). BAQ Roundded led to the ultra-round fat family Yuki (2010; +YukiLined, a stencil version). Hiruko (2008, eight styles) is a rounded sans family in the style of VAG Round. See also Hiruko Pro (2013). A robust geometric outgrowth of this is Ebisu (2010). Hiruko Stencil (2012) is a further extension.

In 2009, some of their fonts, such as Miyagi (paperclip type) seem to survive at HypeForType. YouWorkForThem carries BAQ, Hiruko, Miyagi, Amaya (2009, grunge), Gen (2009, ink spill grunge), Taku and Yume (2009, ultra fat retro).

Additions in 2010: Rika (a strong condensed sans), Saki Medium (a headline sans that builds on Ebisu), Sho Medium (an elegant expanded sans, also for headlines), Toshiko (techno face), Vow (extra thin, avant garde), Lippy (a lipstick brush face; see also Lippy Sans, 2012).

Typefaces from 2012: York Handwriting (a poster face), Headlined (a grungy bold grotesk in the style of Veneer), Electro (a paperclip typeface), Soto, Mr Chalk (done with Dawn Lewandowski), Letro (a modern slab done with Dawn Lewandowski), Vow Neue, Sobek (alchemic), Patisserie.

Typefaces from 2013: Gongo (rounded monoline all caps sans), Headlined Solid, Nanami (2013, avant-garde sans in 18 styles), Nanami Rounded, Crop (a rounded stencil family).

Typefaces from 2014 include Primiterus (a hipster style typeface by Maciej Swierczek), Toggle, Rustick (hand-drawn poster family), Nanami Handmade.

In 2015, Alex Haigh published the avant-garde typeface family Nanami Pro, an extension of Nanami, the free shadow typeface Nanami 3D, and Nanami Rounded (which in turn was followed by Nanami Rounded Pro in 2016).

Portfolio.

I finally understood the name Thinkdust. Upon blowing up the characters, one notices that all the glyphs are sprinkled with dust---see, e.g., Kono, Yumo, Yuko, Yoko, Soto, Roka, Mikagi (paperclip face), Hiroko, and BAQ Metal.
