XO, Pretty is the typographic face of House of Pretty, designing from Chicago since 2002. XO, Pretty focuses on pop-inspired typography.
All of XO, Pretty’s type families are from Patric King, who began his career as a designer with Thirst in 1994, and helped to build Thirstype until 1999. All of Patric’s typefaces moved with Thirstype to Village in 2001, then on to XO, Pretty in 2005.
Patric designed type consistently through the 1990s, but stopped to relearn the craft in the early 00’s. Royal Street, published in 2013, represents that change, being his newest family since Gia (originally published by Thirstype in 2000).
