It’s time for #fontfriday 2012 style! We decided to do some new branding for our font friday series to jazz it up a bit. Fun, no? We will change the accent color and number every week but otherwise I think this is here to stay!
For our first 2012 font post we thought we would share Attic by You Work For Them. We subscribe to their newsletter and it just so happens they are running a killer 50% off sale right now. Font sales are my favorites because they are so rare and I have such a long, long list of fonts I’m dying to purchase for our library. What I love about Attic is that its really super quirky, has a hand-written feel and is adorably bold.
Here’s YWFT’s description:
This is about a journey, from humble EPS handset to magical OpenType glory that might even be a bit spooky if it wasn’t so darn majestic. This stately YWFT Attic is full of surprises, with gorgeous stylistic alternates and swash features that even Scooby Doo might leap into your arms over, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids. Make no mistake, though, there’s no Ruh Ro here–in fact there’s glyphs in that thar Attic–over 350 of them, each one hand-carved by Maddy Nye, Michael Paul Young and the artisan Brazilian type ninjas at PintassilgoPrints, known for their vigorous crafting of magical OpenType features.
Tough, demanding and theatrical, yet delicate enough for the most slender chanteuses to catch the Phantom’s eye, YWFT Attic packs all of the emotional power of OpenType, with strong, historical handset roots. Sing, my angels. Sing for the Attic.
I love the way they think about their work! Fun, hip and cool right? Anyway, this is definitely a new addition to my ever-growing, monstrous library of fonts. I also snuck in a few others, hopefully C doesn’t have a stroke when he sees my new acquisitions show up in Illustrator, hehe!
