Filmotype

Originally sold in the 1950s, the Filmotype introduced by its founders Allan and Beatrice Friedman was a simple manually operated photo typesetting machine (the iMac of the 1950s) and it used 2-inch filmstrips with over 500 amazing display alphabets so the user could set headlines on photo paper or film. Filmotype eventually went on to become Alphatype until the Mac came along in 1984 and POOF! No more photo typesetting!

Originally released in the late 1950s, Filmotype expanded it’s Free Style typeface category with the introduction of Melody, an offbeat Googie era doo-wop typeface which was most frequently associated with music and entertainment lettering styles throughout the last 1950s and early 1960s just as Elvis and the Beatles were making the scene. To expand the versatility of this wonderful typeface, designer Rian Hughes developed and remastered new condensed and expanded versions of Melody called Melon and Mellow respectively.
