I BEG of you to read the wonderful interview about House Industries over at the fantastic design blog Grain Edit. The interview TOTALLY pertains to the second half of my 254 typeface project.
House Industries is known for producing fantastic, well crafted goods to accompany their typeface releases. They research and revive faces and design artifacts from the past and repackage it for modern day consumption. They create tangible goods to accompany intangible font files. They create design pieces that you do not want to throw away, but instead you want to touch, display, think and be moved to MAKE objects yourself. ahhhh…what a company!
