We continue to ring the changes to the “my type of…” blog. Not  massively, but I think in a way that 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 November I present to you ‘Tangled Jeans’ by freelance illustrator Hwan Uk Choe. This typeface ‘Tangled Jeans’ was commissioned by Calvin Klein Jeans Korea as an artist collaboration event to promote Calvin Klein Gradation Denim.

Living and working in Seoul, Korea, Hwans portfolio is a comprehensive mix of illustration and design, with type playing an important role within his work.  He has some other excellent typefaces on his website too, including ‘Nature,’ ‘Restaurant’, Pasta Party’ and ‘Cellar Door’ to name a few. Go there now – be inspired!


Thanks very much to Hwan for permission to feature his work here. All the images above remain the copyright of Hwan Uk Choe.

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…
