About Lost Type Co-Op:
Lost Type is a Collaborative Digital Type Foundry. Operated and Managed by Riley Cran (and originally co-founded with Tyler Galpin), Lost Type is the first of its kind, a Pay-What-You-Want type foundry. Since 2011 Lost Type has been a source for unique typefaces, with a collection of over 50 different faces from contributors all over the world.
100% of the funds from sales of these fonts go directly to their respective designers. Lost Type fonts have been used across the world, and recently have been featured in projects for Nike, Starbucks, Disney and the 44th President of the United States. Lost Type continues to be dedicated to to the idea that quality fonts should be made available to anyone who wants to create an individual piece of characterful design.
We have always been fascinated with letters. When reading text set in well drawn letters, the letters themselves are invisible, only the content of the writing comes through. But if you look closely there is an incredible amount of detail in each glyph. Our passion lays in the balance of the beautiful details and utility of how they relate to each other in a typographic system.
