We make fonts that make your design work easier, and more enjoyable.

We know what designers look for and need from a great typeface, because we use type, too. We believe that great type should be accessible to all, whether you're a student or working at a large company.
We made this for you.

    Heather Cran

    Heather Cran

    Heather’s first business card job title read “alphabet enthusiast,” and the sentiment has only deepened in the decade since. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in design, Heather worked as a graphic designer for several years before shifting her practice to focus on typeface design. Her typographic experience as a practicing designer helps her to create typefaces that anticipate designers’ needs and are intuitive and fun to use. Heather lives and works together with her husband Riley in Vancouver, where she loves to cook, craft, and play relaxing video games after-hours. You’ll rarely find her wearing anything that could be considered a neutral color.

    Danelle has been obsessed with drawing letters for quite some time, judging by the intricate bubble alphabets on her grade school notebooks. She finds type to be the ultimate design challenge, and especially loves creating how-to materials to make sure designers get the most out of their typefaces. In her spare time, Danelle organizes Salt Lake Lettering Club, a local community meetup group, binges podcasts, and goes hiking in the mountains of Utah with her partner and their cat.
