Creating typefaces takes time. It’s a delicate process that involves numerous rounds of revisions, decisions and sometimes even abandonment of the whole project. This catalogue functions as an accessible inventory of fonts that are «In Progress»; to start a conversation about their existence and potential in future designs.

BOLIVIA

This typeface started as an interpretation of Albert Hollenstein’s famous «Brasilia» from 1958. A second version (G) with vertical terminals was drawn in order to let the modernistic feeling collide with a more humanistic expression. The untypical long tails of /f, /j, /r and /t are emphasized and accompanied with stylistic alternatives to give it a more contemporary feeling.

BULL5

I had seen a sample of this typeface a few years back when I was researching typewriter-designs, but was never able to track down a good source. In 2019 a friend (and ↗ talented designer) purchased photographic prints from a closure of a newspaper archive and who’d believe it, all the images were labeled with this exact typeface. I digitized it instantly, keeping it very straightforward with all its quirks, irregular proportions and curves. Its raw mechanic character is emphasized by bold punctuation and optional double-widths for the letters /M, /m, /W and /w.

DELPHIA

Delphia’s design references early 20th century Gothics like ATF’s «Lining Gothic», «Gothic No. 545» and more. With nearly triangular counter-shapes, the lowercase was kept fairly close to the original. The rest of the typeface is headed into a more contemporary and clear style, making it useable for more than print purposes. The clear skeleton also made it possible to expand the typeface with multiple weights and widths, without sacrificing its untypical character.

BRUBECK

While I was having a drink in Rotterdam’s famous «Hotel New York», I stared at one of Dave Brubeck’s best live LPs, wondering what typeface they used on the cover. After days of researching, I still couldn’t find it — so I drew my own version. What you see is an attempt to inherit this distinct 60s, prototype feeling. This set of letters is made to be set tight and big.

UNDO SANS

The history of inline and neon display typefaces are rich and wild, especially in Phototypesetting catalogues of the 70s. Undo’s construction is based on a geometric grotesque and tries to take it one step further by balancing dark and bright spots that arise from the pairing of sharp and round corner-details and separated stroke endings.
