New found love – Feijoa

Posted on Dec 10, 2014 in Typography

Okey, I’m a nerd when it comes to the shapes of letters and I for sure have my favorite typefaces, you might call it fonts, and I just wanted to share with you that today I found a new love.

Her name is Feijoa (don’t know if it really is a her – but I think so) and to show her off in all her glory I’ve chosen my favorite word. Just look at the exquisitely crafted ”g”! It gives me goosebumps.

Feijoa was crafted by Kris Sowersby and was sent in to the world in 2007. Based in Wellington, New Zealand Kris is the creator of Klim Type Foundry that I just know we will see a lot of masterful lettering and typeface emerge from.
