About Architype Albers Font Family
Architype Konstrukt is a collection of avant-garde typefaces deriving mainly from the work of artists/designers of the inter-war years, whose ideals have helped to shape the design philosophies of the modernist movement in Europe. Due to their experimental nature character sets may be limited.
Architype Albers draws on early grid-based attempts by Josef Albers, in 1926, to design an alphabet by reducing the forms to purely geometric elements – the square, triangle and parts of a circle – and in the process creating an unusual stencil effect typeface.
About The Foundry
Started in 1989–90 by David Quay and Freda Sack, with just two typefaces Foundry Sans and Foundry Old Style, The Foundry typeface library has grown into a unique range of font styles, covering a range of languages and formats. The partners continue to develop new typeface designs to expand The Foundry font collection.
David and Freda bring a unique combination of traditional and modern approaches to font design and implementation, having worked in every technological development of type design since hot metal, including the beginnings of digital font technology. Their craft skills and pre-digital experience lend integrity and quality to their type design.
Their involvement with design and typography gives them a highly individual approach to their work as type designers. This is also motivated by personal dialogue with designers from all over the world. Nothing makes them happier than when someone sends in a superb example of The Foundry fonts in use – and fortunately this happens quite often.
