About TX NineVolt Font Family
Assimilated from the characteristics of handwriting, NineVolt was engineered to emphasize the bottom connections. The result is a strong, graphic baseline with a left to right movement. Another intention was to design a typeface that had 3 degrees more slant than the common 6 degrees found in many script faces. One could say that the 9 degree backbone gives NineVolt extra verve and vigor. The main design goal was to achieve a quick repetition of hard angles that move along the baseline. Once the font is set in text, it has the quality of having a continuous straight line along the baselines. This "ink-line" serves as a vehicle to communicate and resemble rule lines, drafting, and note taking.
California-based digital typefoundry headed by Michael Kohnke.
Typebox describes itself as follows:
"TYPEBOX: mind, heart and hand. Like in life itself, the process of 'thinking, feeling and doing' can also be applied to design culture - from concept and formgiving to the ongoing use of craft with the art of cartography, graphic design, and type design.
"TYPEBOX: useful and unique. Typebox provides creative services and markets typefaces to meet the expectations of today's design industry. Our experience in cartography, graphic design, and type creation is driven by visualizing finite information in various ways. It is through critical thinking and evaluation that Typebox finds the solution that works best for a need.
"TYPEBOX: promoting clarity and craft. Typebox understands that technique and style of presentation has its own peculiarities and integrity, and this must be made clear when developing a particular visual display. We do this by finding appropriate suppositions that will fuel ideas. This will help in maintaining an expansive thought process, and engage experienced and creative people in order to achieve effective, solid and lively work that amplifies a client's vision and values.
