Colophon Foundry has re-released its typeface Montefiore, which was first created in 2009 and created a specimen to sit alongside the launch. “Montefiore was originally drawn in our student days at Brighton University. The road signage in Hove, East Sussex was unlike standardised UK road signage,” explains Colophon. “It had been rendered from cast metal around the Victorian era. This analogue and idiosyncratic production method produced interesting results. We extended these sketches into a two-weight type family that was originally released in 2009, without an accompanying specimen.”
Hong Kong-born, New York-based animator Saiman Chow was asked by American cable channel Adult Swim to create a series of 15-second idents for its show Rick and Morty to be used as promos. “The brief was very open, it was just to interpret the show and the characters however I saw fit. Besides some standard federal regulations, nothing was off limits,” explains Saiman.
