ABOUT







Counterpoint Type Studio [Jason Anthony Walcott]

Established in 2013 by Hollywood, CA-based Jason Walcott (formerly operating as JAW Fonts and as Jukebox Type), b. 1971, Michigan, Counterpoint Type Studio started marketing fonts in that same year. The first batch included India Ink (2013), Raspberry Jam (a delightfully curly vampire script), Profiterole (a feminine pastry shop script), and Califunkia (pure psychedelia), and Domani CP (a faithful digital revival of an old photo-typositing typeface called ITC Didi. Originally designed by Herb Lubalin and Tom Carnese, Domani brings to life a font that has been somewhat neglected by the digital era until now).

In 2014, he added Swashington.

In 2015, he designed Plectrum CP (a Peignotian sans typeface family with very large x-height). Later in 2015, he set up Jukebox Collection.

Typefaces from 2016: Schmalfette CP. He writes: SchmalfetteCP is the result of another collaboration between designers Jason Walcott and Rob King. King suggested that Walcott revive this wonderful and somewhat forgotten sans serif typeface from the mid 1950s. Originally designed by Walter Haettenschweiler in 1954, Schmalfette Grotesk was used for many years in the German magazine Twen. The typeface was notoriously hard to acquire at the time and graphic designers in the USA often resorted to cutting letters from the Twen magazines and reusing them in their own designs. Later, when digital type came along several typefaces very similar were created that claimed to be digital revivals of Schmalfette Grotesk. However, they are actually only loosely based on the original. The proportions are different and in some cases a lower case was added. The original font was all caps.
