TypeFace Tuesday

. 2.17.2009


I'm going to be unveiling some new features here on MAIYA over the next little while, the first of which is TypeFace Tuesday!

TypeFace Tuesday celebrates the use of text in art and design, as well as The Font itself. I'm pretty excited about it and hope you are too! Reader submissions and suggestions are, of course, always welcome! If you spot something you think would be perfect for TypeFace Tuesday, shoot me an email!

Now, on with the show!

Typeface Wall Art from Chiasso - $288
46" W X 1.375 D X 32" H
Printed on canvas. It reads:
The meaning can sometimes be found in the context of the typeface.
In this case, "read between the lines"?

You may or may not already know about dafont.com, a site where designers upload fonts and users can download them for free (usually). Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here are a few that caught my eye:
Pee Pants Script by Kirk Shelton, Pointy by Pointy Design, Soda by Ronan le Guevellou, VTKS Revolt by Douglas Vitkauskas, Sanserifing by Extate, Sketch Rockwell by artill.

Let me know what you think of TypeFace Tuesday and if you find something great, tell me!
