The work schedule has stayed intense here through the first quarter of the year. TYPO SF kicks off today, though, so it’s a chance to take a small break and interact with our friends in the design community. :: I will be presenting at 10am on Friday, April 6th, too. Follow me at @rxc for updates and notes along the way. Cheers, —Rod
We’re just emerging from another heavy duty work period. We’re calling it 2011. We built typefaces for some of the most prestigious companies in the Universe last year. …OK, well maybe just the Solar System, but you get my point. The workflow made it difficult to publish new fonts for our own collection, or to update our site (which will be getting some much needed love this year). And if all this frenzy was whipped cream, then the cherry on top was the iOS app we launched via our Glyfyx imprint. :: It’s hard to know what 2012 has in store, but a top goal for us is to connect with you all in a better way. For starters, we’ve initiated our Twitter account and will post updates and special offers there, so please follow along! We’ll be back soon with more PSY/OPS updates, too. Cheers! -RXC
We’re proud to have been selected as the July winner at UK Design Awards!
PSY/OPS participated in Getting Upper, an exhibit of the 26 letters of the alphabet designed by 26 designers and artists. X, created by PSY/OPS Designer Justine Mendoza and screen printed by Bloom Screen Printing Co, is available for sale at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.
Just released: Adaptive Code. This adaptation of Adaptive Mono Regular was especially build for code writing. The font maintains the Adaptive character, but every character was re-assessed and adjusted for optimal on-screen clarity.
Just released: Harfang Pro, a fresh neoclassic by André Simard. From its refined Light to its muscular Ultra, Harfang offers a full range of use: excellent readability in text settings, and a sturdy, sculpted presence at display scale.
CRASH NUMBERING is ten years old, and to celebrate we’ve updated and reissued the family. The two numerocentric fonts — a clean sans and a chunky serif style — now include OpenType features that swap in the alternate numerals, along with other small enhancements. Get it free.
Several PSY/OPS typefaces are now available for web embedding at TYPEKIT. Making their debut are Vidange Pro (shown above), Adaptive Mono, Default Gothic and VM74, with more titles to follow in the coming months.
We welcome Alex Styc as our summer intern! She will be studying abroad for part of the summer session, but we look forward to working with her while she is here in the studio.
KRYPTOIDS™ are a decorative tribute to circuit boards and org charts, chemical structures and family trees, transit maps, crop circles and shift knob diagrams. Each Kryptoid font contains 300 pictomorphs, and each of those comes in three interlocking substyles — base, exo and cell — for a total of 900 unique glyphs per font. The substyles are accessible as OpenType features, and can be stacked and colored in your favorite OT-friendly drawing application. Includes a 76-page User Guide.
The GALLERY is the new home for PSY/OPS’ type-inspired posters. Great new designs, available in different formats (including iPhone wallpapers), will be added over the coming months, so make sure to visit often.
