Whyte Regular Italic
Whyte Bold Italic
Whyte is a derivative of supposedly the first true Grotesk with upper and lower cases, as well as a bold face (White Typefoundry, 1860–62). Found in a dutch architecture journal, a Medium weight was drawn under the guidance of Laurenz Brunner during an internship. Since then, the family was redrawn and extended to 3 weights and italics. Whyte has been use for the Meret Oppenheim Prize 2013, designed by Dan Solbach.
Based on a few characters posted by the Type Founders Archive on Instagram, later identified as a spread from "Harrild & Sons' New & Abridged Specimens" (circa 1890). Unfortunately, no further information or characters could be found. Designed upon by Johannes Breyer in early 2017, Estragon comes in the styles Wildstyle, Arrow, Bubble – and can be combined via OpenType. First used for the identity of Condo New York by Sam de Groot in 2017, who called the design a mixture of "Kurt Schwitters and Wildstyle".
Bingo is based on a type sample published in Rob Roy Kelly’s "American Wood Type, 1828-1900 (…)". Unlike its source, Bingo’s inner and outer contours are drawn with polygons, which makes it appear smooth and rounded at small size, or brutal when scaled up. A second set of monolinear, thin punctuation has been added in 2012.
