VetteLetters.nl is fascinated by kebab shops, local chinese restaurants and fish-and-chips joints – not just the food but especially the shopfront typography.
If all the other type foundries are like haute cuisine restaurants, then VetteLetters is the font-imbiss in the world of exclusive and expensive font foundries. VetteLetters, based in Amsterdam, loves food and loves fonts. So let’s introduce our chefs: After a wonderful career as a dishwasher, assistant cook, some kind of designer, and last but not least type designer, Donald® Roos is now one of VetteLetters CEOs. Donald DBXL Beekman is “the other Donald” and also the other CEO. DBXL produces as many typefases as Prince makes records. Jacques “Sardines” Le Bailly also known as the Baron von Fonthausen is Chief Type Tech. Dev. Dept. and we have Martin “TwoPoints” Lorenz, baking his fonts in the lovely climate of Barcelona.
The latest addition to the VetteLetters stable is designer Henning Brehm aka “Design Tourist” hailing from Berlin.
