a way with words
we’re obsessed with playtype.com –an online font shop with a talent for beautiful type
October 25, 2013Column: deliberate polish
whether we’re re-decorating our salon walls with a single, bold statement letter or stocking our cabinets with personalized coffee mugs, we've become enchanted by the artful, modern fonts by playtype.com — type foundry and online shop created by denmark-based design agency e-types.
a visit to the site's concept shop in copenhagen tops our traveling shopping list, but in the meantime we love spending our coffee break scrolling through their 100+ typefaces that are all cleverly splashed across customizable posters, t-shirts, ceramic mugs and more in the site's the online shop.
you can also browse each font alphabetically by style (serif, sans slab) classification (weight, style, width) and even designer, brush up on the basics in the typographer's glossary or peruse the font gallery for inspiration (plus a signature print or two).
happy (font) shopping!
