Over the past couple of months, we have been really excited about Lost Type, a new “Pay-What-You-Want” type foundry that creates and offers a host of cool, vintage-inspired typefaces for download. Many different designers have contributed their designs and the site is already growing to be an extremely valuable resource full of inspiration and quality typefaces. Below are some of our favorites as well as some more info from their website!

Founded by Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin, originally in a whirlwind 24 hour adventure to distribute a single typeface, Lost Type has blossomed into a full fledged foundry, distributing fonts from designers all over the world, with its unique model.

Users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font, you can even type in ‘$0′ for a free download. 100% of funds from these sales go directly to the designers of the fonts, respectively.
