The Official Lost Type Co-Op Store Now Open

Big fan of the work that both Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin put in over at Lost Type Co-Op website: not to mention the various designers who have contributed a number of typefaces for you to download.

Although the typefaces are freely available via the Lost Type they operate on a Pay-What-You-Want scheme, the first online typeface store of its kind, with 100% of the contributed donations going direct to the respective designers. Also worth nothing that neither Riley or Tyler take any cut from this operations neither do they hold onto any funds.

Lost Type Co-Op Store

I have recently been chatting to Riley because I am a big fan of his design work, and have previously featured some of his amazing logo designs, and through these chats Riley brought up the subject of the new Lost Type Co-Op Store.

I’m delighted to be able to help these guys spread the word about the store with their initial offerings shown in the photographs above. Merchandise includes: The Official Button Kit and a Font Specimen Book for their font Ribbon.

The graphics on those pins are just gorgeous.

If you don’t fancy buying anything from the store then you should at least browse the stupendously varied selection of fonts on offer. The fonts above are just a small selection from their library.
