ABOUT







Fontsinuse [Stephen Coles]

Stephen Coles set up this site about fonts in advertising and the media in 2010. The initial page reads: Our effort begins here, with a regularly updated collection of case studies and trend reports. We've invited experts from various fields to comment on how type is used (and misused) in graphic design today. In our first few installments, magazine designer Marc Oxborrow has an emotional reaction to the redesign of Bloomberg Businessweek, the Font Bureau's Sam Berlow notices that the type specimen has become a design genre, I point to some recent projects in which type and especially typeface selection plays a central role, and instructor and historian Indra Kupferschmid reminds us that the real Bauhaus was not all geometric and experimental letterforms. This blog is a prologue of more to come. Behind the scenes, we are building a searchable, sharable archive of typographic design, all indexed by typeface, industry, and medium. And you are invited to join us.
