As a designer, I am presented with a world of opportunities to explore. I enjoy making typefaces, some more than others. The reality of being a type designer today involves analyzing what the market wants and creating along those lines. There’s nothing wrong with that; there’s a challenge and excitement with that as well.

I want to be able to collaborate with my customers to create better, customized solutions. After all, that’s why I got into typeface design. You see, I wanted to make better, more unique brand solutions. Branding involves type, and I was not content to use the same Futura Extra Black or Univers Ultra Thin Italic that everyone else was using. I wanted something unique.

Custom typefaces are essential. Shoot, I’ve done that for an entire city before. Sometimes, clients approach me and I modify an one of my fonts. Other times, I build something just for them.
But, more than likely, you don’t have that kind of budget. That’s ok.

Then, there is artistic exploration completely outside of the marketplace.

It can be useful to explore design options and release a font that you don't think has a lot of commercial value. Sometimes they are successful. Others are miserable failures. When they fail, that means losing several months worth of work, not to mention the considerable other investment that often goes alongside the typeface design.

This Patreon is designed for two things.
  1. To allow exploration of some more unique work cases that don't have a large commercial value, but are more of interest to particular small groups of people.
  2. Get closer to my customers to create custom solutions for them.
Since 2015, I've been inviting people on social media channels to provide input. Now, it's time to take it to the next level. To that end, I've set this Patreon on so that people can vote on what my next font will be. I hope to offer options to backers that will be presented here.
