Yesterday was a really exciting day for our crew at Orange Element. It was the inaugural monthly Font Hour. Font Hour was an idea of Aaron's in which we each vote on a Font that we'd like to see added to our collection. Each team member was asked to bring an idea for a font they'd like, including information on the typeface designer, origin, context, display set, pairings, cost, etc.
At the end, a vote was held and the winning typeface was chosen: Freight Micro by Joshua Darden. You can read all about Freight Micro HERE. It's going to make a great addition to our collection and should really enhance some of the designs we are able to produce here in our design studio.
As is the case with many inaugural events, we did have one new rule added to the mix mid-event. We decided that typefaces that we all love of that are under $25 are eligible for purchase in addition to the winning typeface.
Here's what the scene looked like yesterday:
Stay tuned for next month's font hour recap.
