About Gripewriter Font Family

Typewriters are becoming scarce, but fonts designed to look like they came from typewriters aren't. In this case, however, Gripewriter is meant to look as if it were typed on a textured paper and enlarged, emphasizing flaws and lending it a funkier, grungier look than your average typewriter face. This was originally called Hypewriter until it was pointed out that a font already existed with that name. The current name is a better fit, anyway, since Gripewriter looks like it might hold a grudge.

About Elemeno

Elemeno burst on the scene early in the sixth century and created an immediate sensation. Teenage girls swooned at the sight of Elemeno on postcards and street signs. When Elemeno broke up, the English language entered a long period of uncertainty and angst. Of course l, m, n and o have had successful solo careers, but their many fans have waited anxiously for any indication of a reconciliation between the four. The appearances of words like “lemon,” “moonlight” and “nomenclature” and a popular children’s song, containing the lyric “Elemeno pea,” have caused speculation that the four might rejoin. Alex Grecian, a graphic designer and illustrator, managed to get the four in a room together, for the first time in centuries, to talk about letters. The transcript from this lengthy interview has served as the basis for a library of new type, created by Grecian, to celebrate the many forms and uses of language.
