Hype Foundry

After playing around with handwritings for a while, I was taken by the fact that type can be easy and quick. I started printing outlines of existing typefaces, tracing them with markers or fineliners, scanned it and traced it. A nice trick for that time. I used it for the titles Reader Magazine (2002) and even other people started using these fun fonts.

I called the collection of typefaces 'The Hype Foundry' and also made a booklet with the font collection.

One of these typefaces was used Reader Magazine (2002, project by Michiel Schuurman and Hansje van Halem)
