An optometrist’s business card, the packaging for a rubber band gun, a basketball court, a scented candle, the concrete signage markers for subtropical hiking trails: these are just a few of the marvelous projects for which designers have chosen fonts from Hoefler & Frere-Jones. They’re sharing their work over on our Facebook photo page, where more than 3,800 fans are currently perusing the collection. If you’re a Facebook user and an type enthusiast, come by and share the typographic masterpieces that you’ve made with our fonts.
New on the blog this morning, the tag “Made with H&FJ” marks some of the great things we’ve seen done with our work, which we’ve written about here on the blog. Hiding among the publications, identities, posters, illustrations, and presidential campaigns are a few unexpected delights, including one typeface bedecked with icicles, and another fashioned into a ten-foot topiary. This week promises two more typographic extravaganzas: a brilliant but unclassifiable magazine, and a roving cupcake purveyor. Stay tuned. —JH
