FontSmith – London based type foundry and design studio

Surfed upon this rather scrummy type foundry, named Fontsmith. My search for new fonts is an endless and a time consuming task. When I come across a ‘new to me’ type foundry, I get all excited you see. If said type foundry website is also lush to look at and use, then all the better.
