It’s time for a little change to the “my type of…” blog. Not a huge one, but one I think may appeal to some. Notice the header? You know how I change the typeface every month (go look in the header archive if you haven’t), well now you have a chance to get your typeface up there. This is an open call to showcase new typefaces!
For October I present to you ‘Flo Studio’ by Canadian graphic designer Charles Nolin.
Charles tells me that this was originally designed as part of a school project, and was encouraged enough to develop the entire character set. Although this is not a fully functioning typeface, it can be used by manually composing each character. It is obviously intended for use as a display face and can be highly customised too.
Charles’ other design work is full of very tasteful typography and some excellent vector illustrations too - go check them out!
Thanks very much to Charles for permission to feature his work here.
So what typefaces have you designed? I would like to feature new work, experiments and non-commercial typefaces once a month – all you have to do is send me an email with a small sample image attached and a little information about your design. Submissions are welcome from professional designers, students and the typographically inclined.

I will get back touch with you for more samples and information as I update the blog. Of course, any work submitted will be attributed to you, and links to your website/blog/shop will be included. It’s over to you…
