Fort Foundry  Never quit building.

Shackleton has arrived at Port @Typekit ⚓️ Ready for Desktop Sync and Web Use. Link in bio.

Here’s some first shots of Zax Sans and Zax Layers—custom typefaces—that we got to design with @realzaxbys! 🐓There was a number of different base styles along with a full-on layered system to give it a signage feel when needed. The family has roots in Futura as that had been a part of the Zaxby’s for some time now.

Working with the design team for this project was a dream ✨ Can’t wait to share more!

Shackleton sails again!
Be on the lookout next week for our latest font on @typekit.

@robotfooddesign has got our spirits up. Love all the designs for @coopukfood’s rebrand and it’s so much fun seeing Bourbon playing a supporting role. Cheers! 🍻

Take it easy for a little while.🌖 The new Arctic Monkeys has been stuck in my head all day. These two fonts here have been on the back-burner and it’s about time I finish them up.

Fonts in the Wild Alert! @emrichoffice designed and illustrated these beautiful cans and packaging. The man’s got some serious attention to detail. For the type, he’s utilizing Termina and has a test version of one of our upcoming families seen in “Shatter Cone.” 😉🍻

Who says sans serifs can’t be fun? 🤠
There’s just something about these italics that I can’t help but love. Specimens from Farmer & Son Type Founding Co. (1900)

It was a tight squeeze on the Endurance. Ernest Shackleton was rigid in what could make its way onto the ship for the big expedition. Almost no space could be wasted. One exception however? Tobacco. There was plenty of tobacco.

I’m excited to share some of work we got to do with @realzaxbys design team. With the refresh, we wanted to keep a lot of the personality / recognizability of the original, but refine the letterforms and spacing. The main focus areas were 1) Evening out the weight distribution of each letter 2) Cleaning up the serifs and curves 3) Balancing the overall negative space between letters—especially with the ’S 4) Keeping the bottom curve similar, but allowing each letter to grow taller for better legibility at smaller sizes. Their team was such a blast to work and I still can’t believe I got to work with them on it 🤩  More pics from the custom typeface part of the project to come 😃

@triedandtruesupply sent over this delightful Westworld poster @mdpamer designed using Shackleton. Now, it has me questioning my reality. 🤩
