About Treefrog Font Family

A one-time co-worker of mine sometimes used a fanciful inkpen-style script in display-lettering situations. I liked it a lot. "Phil," I says, "why not do the whole alphabet, maybe a few little dingbats, and I'll make a font." Well, one day he presented me with a stack of posterboard; he'd done some letters, all right -- hundreds of 'em. I managed to boil these down into a typeface called Treefrog, a name that seems to match its organic jumble, its tall x-height, its left- and right-leaning stems, its thick and thin strokes. Full release has many dingbats.

About Three Islands Press

Three Islands Press (a.k.a., “3IP”) is a small type foundry in Rockport, Maine. Specialties include historical replications, fine text type, old map fonts, and painstaking recreations of vintage and modern handwriting. 3IP is the d.b.a. of Brian Willson, who accidentally stumbled into type design in the 1990s after a career in print and broadcast journalism. He has absolutely no formal training—just a peculiar knack for making fonts that look like real handwriting and antique text materials. 3IP also represents the work of Swedish type designer Lars Bergquist, whose previous career was publishing of encyclopedias and reference literature in the days of lead type. Bergquist’s elegant, varied, multipurpose typefaces are as polished as any out there.
