New Brooklyn-Based Type Foundry
Based in Brooklyn, Faire Type is an independent type foundry working at the intersection of graphic design and type design to craft letterforms beautiful in form and versatile in function.
With a rigorous attention to every detail, their type catalog is a built on the foundations of historical knowledge, formal exploration, and careful technical and technological execution. Consisting of six typefaces, Faire Type’s catalog is a mixture of fresh-takes on storied material, and completely original work.
FAIRE Sprig reimagines the classic typeface Cheltenham through a modern lens, and pairs it with a proportionally harmonious geometric grotesque typeface, FAIRE Sprig Sans. FAIRE Luma layers organic serif forms on a faux monospace skeleton, with a contrast axis that allows things to get dramatic—perfect for display and large headlines. FAIRE Palme, a calligraphic sans-serif, takes inspiration from the expressive sans-serifs from legendary type designer Roger Excoffon. And FAIRE Octave, a serif typeface, is a beautiful digital execution of an Elzevir print typeface.
All typefaces are available to test and purchase in regular and variable font formats on Faire Type’s new website. Their website also features easy-to-download free trial fonts, and student discounts.
