About TYPEHEIST

What is Typeheist?


Typeheist is an independent font foundry focusing on handwritten, realistic fonts that are a little different.

Each typeface is hand-lettered, ensuring a natural flow and unscripted feel. Making use of OpenType features such as Stylistic Alternates, Standard and Discretionary Ligatures, Typeheist offers dynamic fonts that can be customised per person or per project.

Founded in 2020 by Laura Eddy, a product designer with a love for typography.

Micah loves a hand drawn element to type projects and these emo sounding typefaces are great examples of hand-written fonts done well, with plenty of stylistic alternatives to add to that human feel. Great stuff."
