The voice of a deformed legacy. Monotype gives these victims a voic of hope with the Agent Orang typeface. Use of this typeface raises awareness about their plight andn generates donations. To create the Agent Orange typeface, we analyzed the anatomy of Amarillo USAF, the font on the American AirForce planes that sprayed Agent Orange on Vietnam, and distorted the proportion of it.

John McMillan

John McMillan (Belfast, Northern Ireland) was Professor of Graphic Design at Ulster University. In 2018, he approached MuirMcNeil to develop digital reinterpretation of the tiled lettering used for Belfast's historic street signage in matching Latin and Gaelic scripts. This led to Farset (for Latin) and Feirste (for Gaelic). In addition to redefining contours and completing the positive character sets in upper and lower case, MuirMcNeil added new cameo type families for both scripts. Working with the guidance of Liam McComish of Ulster University, an expert in typography for signage, the appearance of the orginal tiles was replicated in caps and small caps along with several alternate characters found in the orginal tiles.

Tim Hutchinson Design
[Tim Hutchinson]

Britsh graphic, branding and type designer. His typefaces:

  • THD Reel 2019). A bespoke movie typeface.
  • THD Lava (2019). Experimental and geometric.
  • THD Servo (2018). A monolinear sans.
  • THD Mondo (2018). A geometric stencil typeface in the kitchen tile style.
  • THD Claw (2017). A geometric stencil typeface.
  • THD Hexline (2017). An octagonal stencil typeface.
  • THD Sentient (2017). An all-capitals monolinear rounded proportionally spaced all caps sans type family in four weights, designed by Tim Hutchinson in collaboration with MuirMcNeil. It was originally created in 2017 in a single weight for Beyond 2001: New Horizons, a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Stanley Kubrick archive at the London College of Communication. Hutchinson based THD Sentient's characters on the forms of numerals used to display telemetric data on the screen of HAL 9000, the intelligent computer that controls the systems of the Discovery One spacecraft in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. These characters were re-appropriated from an original typewriter font created for the IBM Selectric II System at two fixed sizes specifically for financial settings. Hutchinson writes: Although Kubrick's meticulous research and attention to detail in his films are known to extend to the minutiae of letterforms, whether he was directly involved in the implementation of HAL's display has not been established. However, it is evident that HAL's designer enlisted the IBM numerals more for their subtle evocation of an otherworldly computer language than for any technological accuracy.
  • THD Slam (2017).
  • THD Reporto (2017). A bespoke typeface design for a cultural publication.
  • THD California (2016).
  • THD OCX (2016). An OCR font.
  • THD Connect (2015). A modular display typeface.
