Well, this will be on every design blog out there over the next few days but it applies here for sure, so here is the deal: HypeForType is the newly established digital type foundry from Thinkdust creator/originator Alex Haigh. I mentioned the project back in January and now it is officially online.

There are some interesting fonts already up. I am digging Alex Trochut’s contribution. You will definitely be looking mostly at display faces though, not really any text faces to be found as of yet. There are some really distinctive personalities being conveyed in the fonts and that is what you want when picking out a good display face.

A little about the project from the source:
The vision was to create a type foundry showcasing the best in today’s typographic talent, as well providing a platform for keen eyed creatives to find and buy truly unique, hand-crafted fonts to complement their work. We hope it’s worked. Time (and type) will tell.

Through collaborations with award-winning yep designers, HypeForType offers a veritable feast of fonts for anyone interested in experimenting with typography, designers getting back in touch with the classic skill and brands looking to commission something standout.

Thinkdust is a young independent design studio founded by Alex Haigh. Alex has worked with a broad range of clients. His studio operates within a global network of like minded designers and developers. Thinkdust’s services included branding, graphic design and new media.

The site was just updated so be sure to scope out the latest and greatest. While you are at it, you can also purchase some of Thinkdust’s fonts. All of which are fresh and original. You can purchase the font AIKO Regular here, AIKO (with extra oomph) here, SUKATO here, and my personal favorite BAQ Rounded here.
