ABOUT







Ilott Type [Andrew Bellamy]

British born designer Andrew Bellamy worked for agencies in London, Oslo, and Miami, and is currently developing various global brands as Design Director at JKR in New York City. He created 64-SRC (2017), a rare condensed monospace font inspired by IBM's Selectric type from the 1960s.

His 57 Nao (2016) is a revival of a Japanese typewriter font from the 1950s called Messenjaa. They explain: Designed in 1950s Japan by Okanao & Kushiro, the perfect partnership until artistic temperaments drove them apart. The duo spent years crafting the font with the working title Messenjaa, Okanao bringing technical expertise to craft letterforms, while Kushiro made it his life, obsessively working late into the night to check pages for errors. For him the project was never about making money, it was an artistic endeavor to reprint the great Western works of literature. When he found out Okanao had secretly sold the rights of the font for use as a logo for a major Japanese manufacturer, Kushiro burned all evidence of the designs in a fit of passionate fury. The two reportedly never spoke again. Messenjaa was thought lost forever until a type specimen was discovered in a vintage typewriter box bought on eBay. Now redrawn and available as 57-nao, a faithful and beautifully crafted monospace characterized by what is considered Okanao's defining moment, the angular loop on the lowercase a.

52-Kfx (2017) is an extra tall sans typeface.

35-FTR (2017) was custom drawn specifically for the book Analogue Photography which required the timeless elegance of Futura and the compact utilitarian typesetting of Helvetica.

In 2018, he designed the fashion mag typeface Coutura Sans.
