Or Type

Best Font / Type site we’ve seen in a long time. Or Type’s site, out of Iceland, is live – you change the words for the example fonts, it changes it for everyone viewing the site – instantly. Then, you can either do a rewind of all of the changed words, or see them in “poem” form – kind of interesting to see what people write… “fartBARF” was my favorite so far. More about it here:

“Or Type is an Icelandic type foundry, founded in 2013 to publish typefaces designed by GUNMAD (Guðmundur Úlfarsson & Mads Freund Brunse).

We wish to create alphabets that are fresh and full of character. Developed through self-initiated projects and specific design commissions, our typefaces aim at challenging the conventions found in typographic traditions. Instead, through a spontaneous process of drawing, we create bold and high quality alphabets.

In addition to our growing library of alphabets we provide custom licenses and have the capacity to take on bespoke type design projects.”
