YWFT Wool is a rough-house, dirty stencil font designed to execute textual statements that need to be said with authority. It’s raw, mean, distressed, and can even be used in more conservative manners when set right. YWFT Wool was released in opentype format in 2009.
YWFT Service is a display typeface, strongly influenced by the electronic music movement during the late 90s and early 2000’s. Created during the era when design firm WeWorkForThem was working with music labels and DJs, Service started originally as custom drawn lettering for various flyer work. It was later developed into font form around 2001 and with seven wonderful weight options. Service might be strongly influenced by the electronic/idm music of the time, but when used right it can work in numerous different genres such as fashion (Thin) and editorial headlines (Black).
The visual design of YWFT Trisect was inspired by retro soccer/football jerseys and their triple line, number style. We spent many years in the early 90‘s dreaming of creating this face, but each attempt brought on numerous challenges until we finally achieved a working version around 1998-1999. Multiple clients and customers have used YWFT Trisect since its inception in 1999, including Architecture Magazine, MTV (on air), Wired Magazine, Computer Arts Magazine, the hat store Lidz (signage), along with numerous other companies. YWFT Trisect was converted to opentype format in 2010.
YWFT 6x7oct was originally inspired by found maps that were drawn with only octagonal shapes. When creating this typeface, we used different influences such as punch cards and other electronic devices that use systematical circles for readout. YWFT 6x7oct has been used in advertisements by the popular hat store Lidz and for VH1 brand spots.
YWFT Estencler was originally influenced by many different types of stencil lettering, but then altered to have it’s own unique twist. With an appearance similar to Milton Glaser’s Glaser Stencil, YWFT Estencler takes a more rugged, masculine and tough approach to the stencil idea. YWFT Estencler has been used abundantly by various clients like Wired Magazine, Stones Throw Records and the print magazine Computer Gaming.
YWFT Enam’s letterforms began first as custom lettering during a branding job by the design firm WeWorkForThem, it was later developed into font format in 2002 (opentype format in 2010). After the job, it was later noticed it has some similarity to past work by Wim Crouwel, which is no surprise considering WWFT’s admiration for Crouwel.
YWFT Selek was designed in 1998 with the idea of exploring machine like forms with a softer touch. The final design is somewhere between mechanical and electronic, at the same time it is very experimental in longer text. For legibility it is best to use the Light weight, but for very strong impact and weight, the Extra Bold option is always a strong design solution. YWFT Selek was converted to opentype format in 2010.
