FontShop Friday Five: Birthday Bash


We know you’re busy and the Internet is a crowded place, so we’ll try to give you a little reminder on Fridays of what’s going on out there. Below please find five recent FontShop-related threads that you may have missed.


Even though Yanone’s Antithesis and accompanying video was released over a week ago, we still can’t get enough of it! Yves Peters gives a great summary of the 10 minute dance video and new typeface created by Yanone on the FontFeed. Check it out, we highly recommend it!

SF Design Week/Happy Birthday FontShop!

FontShop turns 25 this year and we are throwing a birthday bash during the San Francisco Design Week! On June 18th, we will open our doors during the free studio tours from 7-8pm where we will “talk type”, make some crafts, and enjoy some delicious cake!

New Fonts

We welcome new foundry lettersoup and announce several new designs from Facetype, Typolar and FONTYOU. Plus a new batch of promotions from Abdo fonts and FONTYOU.

Get Pinning!

If you’re like us, you’re always in search for new ideas and inspiration. That’s where Pinterest comes in! From character studies to huggable fonts, we continue to create boards for all your typography needs.

San Francisco Design Week: Studio Tours & Birthday Celebration!


It’s our 25th birthday and we would like to invite you to celebrate with us during the San Francisco Design Week this June 13-20. We are proud to be the typography sponsor of this fantastic event and will be opening our doors to you during day 2 of the Studio Tours on June 18th from 7-8pm at our San Francisco office.

Come “talk type”, check out our work space and help us blow out the birthday candles. Plus we’ll have some fun crafts and you’ll be able to stuff your face with some delicious cake and beer! Just maybe not at the same time.

Make sure to sign up for the free registration to attend the studio tours.

Typographic Scavenger Hunt for SF Design Week

Will you be San Francisco June 21-27? Join us at AIGA SF’s San Francisco Design Week both virtually and in person.

Those of you on Instagram can play along with our Typographic Scavenger Hunt:

  • Spell out Exploring the Creative Overlap (the more pictures to do this the better) using found type around San Francisco
  • Add to your photo map so we know you’re in the City by the Bay
  • Tag our Instagram account @FontShopSF in your posts
  • Use hashtags #SFDW and #FSTypeHunt
  • Post from June 21 to June 27

We’ll pick our favorite set and invite the winner to lunch at the FontShop offices with our Design Team.


You can also meet our staff in person at events throughout the week. We’re especially looking forward to Friday’s Opening Reception and next Monday’s Pixels of Fury event. We’ve teamed with Shutterstock on the latter to add the FontShop Plugin to the competitor’s toolkit. Can’t wait to see the great creations from this fun night!
