About Dwiggins Deco Font Family

This typeface was originally designed in 1930 by W.A. Dwiggins as the cover for the book American Alphabets by Paul Hollister. Only the 26 letters of the alphabet were included on the cover, so the rest of the numbers, punctuation, symbols, and accented characters have been crafted in a matching style. This strongly geometric Art Deco lettering style has been lovingly revived and is now available as an OpenType font. Over 3,300 kerning pairs are included.

About MADType

MADType is Matthew Aaron Desmond Typeface Design. Since 1996, I've specialized in designing unique original retail fonts for both text and display. I also offer custom typeface design services and logo design. Growing up, I was always fascinated with visual design. As a teenager, I was inspired by reading Thrasher and TransWorld Skateboarding magazines. I would redraw the logos of skateboard companies endlessly on my folders at school. After high school, I pursued a career in graphic design with some website design and programming on the side. It was through my exploration of the visual arts that I discovered my love for letterforms and the design of typefaces.
