Typekirk is the font foundry for type designer Kelly Hobkirk.
As a graphic designer since 1986, I have enjoyed a long history of designing custom type for logos, advertising, and publications. My packaging design and custom type have been featured in Time Magazine, Redbook, KNOCK, and books published by Rockport and Rotovision. I am also an author, so I pay particular attention to how type works in publications.
Formally trained as a calligrapher early in my career, I was first captivated by type when my father hand-painted inspirational quotes on walls during my childhood. I inherited my great-grandfather’s sign-painting toolbox, as well as his acute spacial awareness.
Each typeface or font family I develop is designed to serve a particular purpose or capture a certain feeling. Headline fonts are among my specialties, with a focus on advertising and brand identity applications.
