Match & Kerosense, the type foundry and design studio of Alex Sheldon, is killing it with their releases lately. The latest edition to the library is Detroit, a 12 font system that can be layered to create numerous typographic effects. I will definitely be picking this one up next time I do some type shopping. Purchase a copy for yourself at My Fonts.
This is so cool! Definitely on my wish list…
Can’t believe it, I JUST did something similar… Not really, I just made a three color font + outline colors. And I’m about to add even more to it. Come check it out… http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=6027462234814278678#editor/target=post;postID=5557989596302326849
sorry I gave you the wrong link!
Wow, Detroit looks awesome. I have to point out a bit of historical trivia, however — the designer P. Scott Makela created a typeface called Detroit back in the mid to late 90s. This isn’t to say that there can’t be another typeface with the same name, just that it’s not the only one [and maybe there are others as well].
I struggled to find a good example of it online. It’s the smaller type on the cover of Whereishere, a book put out by Scott and his wife Laurie.
