Just My Type

Just My Type (27)

We're just nuts about typography. Font maniacs, as we like to say. Ten years ago, when we began this business, you could count the number of web-safe fonts on two-hands. Today, thanks to the Google Fonts project and several other brilliant coding groups, your choices are endless. We celebrate by featuring our newest favorite font on the first Friday of every month! You can also learn about typography on the web and in print, plus view some of our favorite work!
