About this font

This is one of my most popular fonts, and the first one I released. You’ve probably seen it in ads for Marriott, posters for the film Memento, and Alamo Car Rental, and practically everywhere else. It is popular with children’s book publishers, and it was cool to see it used as Hagrid’s handwriting in the Harry Potter books. It’s my own handwriting carefully digitized by hand (not auto-traced). Handwriting fonts are very common now, but they weren’t in 1989. I did it just to see what it would look like, never dreaming that other people might want to use it. (Thank you, Mark Solsburg of FontHaus.) Two new weights—Bold and Heavy—were added in 2003. First released in 1992.

About this font

Museo is a semi-serif typeface with lucid, open forms and highly original details — especially the pipe-like, bent half-serifs. Museo is great for cool-looking headlines but also very effective in medium-sized texts.

Proxima Nova

About this font

Proxima Nova (2005) is a complete reworking of Proxima Sans (1994). The original six fonts (three weights with italics) have been expanded to 42 full-featured OpenType fonts. Proxima Nova straddles the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid combining humanistic proportions with a somewhat geometric appearance.
