Beta is the company of Tanawat Sakdawisarak, a graduate of the Faculty of Visual Communication Arts and Graphic Design at Assumption University in Bangkok. It sells fonts and EPS format typefaces through YWFT, all more or less alchemic in nature.
In 2012, he and Praire Kongpairin co-designed the alchemic hieroglyph-inspired typeface Saita (available at Ten Dollar Fonts). Still in 2012, he created YWFT Roland (an EPS format ornamental caps face), Baltic and Whiskey in a related style. YWFT Dogma (2012) is an EPS caps typeface based on the same design principles.
In 2013, he published the EPS vector set YWFT Pipe and writes: It's not a flatbed truck, it's a series of tubes, and this totally tubular Pipe will carry you down the water slide to bubble town before you can say "pop art." A little touch of Nintendo, some extra olive juice, and a green Jell-o chaser make for this bubbling EPS vector handset, containing two different styles: flat and glossy/reflection. In 2015, a regular font family was published. King (2013) is an alchemic EPS forrmat typeface family.

Gaslight (or: Valery Zaveryaev)
Gaslight-type-foundry is collaboration between three type designers---Valery Zaveryaev, Maria Luarvik, and Roman Shchyukin---, founded in 2011. Valery Zaveryaev is a Russian designer (b. Bryansk, 1977) at LetterBe, who created the octagonal family Teco (2005), the display typeface Brut (2005), the clean sans family Maza (2005), the informal unicase family Rezerv (2009, inspired by a logo he created for Evroterm), Barrez (2010, a techno family inspired by the TC-Helicon logo), and the stencil typeface Marshrut (2005).
He lives in Bryansk. All his fonts are Latin/Cyrillic.
In 2011, Zaveryaev set up the commercial foundry Gaslight. Fonts there include the elliptical family Maza (2005), the angular elliptical family Barrez (2010), Brut (2005), and the stencil typeface Marshrut (2005). Electrolize (2011) is a free squarish typeface available from Google Web Fonts. Bad Script (2011, Google Web Fonts) is an informal hand-printed typeface made by Roman Shchyukin.
Rock Logo (2012) is a metal band / tattoo font co-designed with Roman Shchyukin. Wide Display and Wide Display Ribbon are unicase headline typefaces. Teco Sans (2012) is an octagonal military typeface family, accompanied by the icon font TecoSymbol (2012) and the stencil family Teco Sans Stencil (2012). Teco Serif (2012) is an octagonal slab version of Teco Sans.
Still in 2012, Zaveryaev designed Actio, Roz (rounded sans family), Wary (pop art typeface that won an award at Modern Cyrillic 2014), the fat display overlay families Quadratish Serif and Quadratish Solid.
Typefaces from 2014: Dotee (octagonal paper cut-out typeface, by Valery Zaveryaev and Maria Luarvik), Sofya.

Kadek Adi Mahardika
I like the description of this Catalan foundry at MyFonts: A foundry with a home in Catalunya. Kickingbird font work takes place in the quiet treehouse headquarters near a former Barcelona textile homestead. Font sketches are completed anywhere a notebook is handy... in the cafes of Gràcia, on the RENFE railway or outside the cloisters of Santa Maria del Mar. Font design inspiration comes from many sources. Faded broadside wall manifestoes in Ravel, broken floor tiles washed up on the shores of Vilassar de Mar or from old cigar boxes found at the Mercat de Sant Antoni. For those who know Barcelona, sweet memories. The designer, Seymour Caprice, created the vernacular typefaces Pop Manta (2009: Pop Manta has been described as "Morris Fuller Benton meets Roy Lichtenstein". Benton's 1903 neo-grotesque letter shapes set to a Pop Art beat.) and Locutorio (2011).
Typefaces from 2013: Bathysphere. This is a steampunk sans described as follows: This steam era typeface, created by Gustav Schroeder in 1884, found popular use on soap box labels and tobacco tins during its initial release. Then, later, a successful and stout revival of Gustav's face, named Othello, was carried out by Morris Fuller Benton in 1934, and the typeface's appeal widened to include items such as broadside posters featuring Boris Karloff's Frankenstein. After metal gave way to film type, Gustav's creation experienced a brief fashion moment in the 1960's, but then disappeared entirely, never re-surfacing as a full digital typeface. With the release of Bathysphere, the typeface comes full circle, having been completely redrawn from scratch using Gustav's original specimens. The new extended language support establishes the typeface firmly in the modern era, while Bathysphere's refinement of subtle blunt corners restores a deep-sea grace to this iron giant. However, Nick Curtis's Iago NF (2011) is also based on Othello, and is close in execution.
In 2016, Caprice designed Trop Magus and writes: Trop Magus is a rugged typeface following in the tradition of Ramon Llull and Jean Jannon. Llull's illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages inspired many later Alchemical texts in the Renaissance. And it was during this era, in 1615, that Jannon cut the matrices for Typi Academiae. Sixty-five astrological and alchemical symbols are included.
K-Type is Keith Bates' (b. 1951, Liverpool) foundry in Manchester, UK, est. 2003. Keith works as an Art&Design teacher at a Salford High School. They custom design type, and sell some of their own creations.
His free fonts:
Custom / corporate typefaces: With Liverpool-based art director Liz Harry, Bates created a personalized font, loosely based on Coco Sumner's handwritten capitals, for the band I Blame Coco. Medium and Semibold weights of Gill New Antique were commissioned by LPK Design Agency. Stepping Hill Hospital and Bates created Dials, a pictorial font to help hospital managers input data about improvements. A custom font was designed for Bolton Strategic Economic Partnership.
Creator at FontStruct in 2009 of Lobo, and Bat Country, while studying at UWE in Bristol, UK. Bat Country is as an aweseome blotchy hand-printed face, in the style of Treefrog. He explains: I made this for my UWE [note: University of Western England] graphic design first year project "communicating with words". I created this inspired by influences from Ralph Steadman and Jackson Pollock using the concept of inconsistency and randomized mark making with ink. The name is derived from a quote from the book "fear and loathing in Las Vegas". I designed it by firstly creating the text with a pot of ink and the back side of a Biro pen, then from that I drew them by hand onto A4 sheets of graph paper limitating each line to only 4 given angles, then finally transfering that onto FontStruct, wich took roughly 30-40 minutes per letter.

Around 2008, making portraits using letters became somewhat of a fad. Wikipedia: Micrography, also called microcalligraphy, is a Jewish art form developed in the 9th century, with parallels in Christianity and Islam, utilizing minute Hebrew letters to form representational, geometric and abstract designs. Colored micrography is especially distinctive because these rare artworks are customarily rendered in black and white. Here and here are some examples. Handpicked by me:

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Like dada, it is a revolutionary movement, a reaction to abstract expressionism and elitist culture in art. Just like dada, it uses found objects and images and makes frequent use of collages with a variety of unrelated materials. Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects. It stresses the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony. Well-known artists in this movement include Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. [Google] [More] ⦿
Quoting from the P22 blurb regarding their P22 Pop Art set of fonts, which includes P22 Pop Art Comic and P22 Pop Art Stencil:
In the mid-1950's, Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns--two young and innovative artists who admired and respected the Abstract Expressionist paintings of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning-- created works which bridged the way to a dynamic new movement. Rauschenberg and Johns applied paint thickly to the canvas with a freely gestural technique similar to that of the Abstract Expressionists but they also introduced and incorporated easily recognizable images as well as found objects.
At roughly the same time in England, a mid-fifties postwar giddiness with newly available consumer goods was responsible for an art movement drawing on popular cultural sources for its imagery. Magazine advertising, cartoons, and films provided the stimulus for much of the art and led Lawrence Alloway, an English art critic, to name it "Pop Art."
By the early 1960's in New York, several artists including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein---working individually and unknown to each other as well as unaware of their English counterparts--arrived at the same destination. They traded less accessible, Abstract Expressionist gestural painting for easily recognizable painting styles and representational subject matter based on familiar commercial sources. As the art critic Lucy Lippard wrote, "Pop Art is instantly to the point, extroverted rather than introverted." These artists-- many capitalizing on their commercial art backgrounds-- invested popular culture with a new seriousness as well as with a wit and humor that blurred the boundary between high and low art as well as the boundary between art and daily life.
Pop art was a reflection of what, nostalgically, seems to have been a more innocent and upbeat period in our recent history. A young President Kennedy had just created the Peace Corps and the Beatles had made their first successful recording, "I Want To Hold Your Hand." [Google] [More] ⦿
